Trail Work

Save to Favorites

Friends of Panthertown

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

We host weekly public trail work days in Panthertown Valley from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on each day scheduled.

Give back to our public lands, get outside, get some exercise, complete fun service learning hours. Panthertown Valley is a protected 6,311-acre backcountry recreation area on Nantahala National Forest.

We plan to hike about 3-5 miles round-trip on easy-to-moderate trails while doing physically distant trail corridor clearing and some tread/drain work. You’ll get a guided tour of the valley and meet others who also love Panthertown.

Everyone is welcome to have fun in the forest!
