Trail Building Update
In October, our trail crew constructed over 4,000 feet of new trail! This trail consisted of 115 stone steps and pavers placed in a month. The terrain of this segment has proven to be a challenge, but our trail crew is working hard to try to get the Cumberland Trail constructed in its entirety so you can attempt a thru-hike!

A huge thanks to the volunteers who joined us this month! We had almost 75 volunteer hours for the month. This brings our annual volunteer hours to 2,557 hours! We love having the community help us build this trail. Our volunteer events make a massive impact on our productivity.

We want to thank everyone who joined us at our first annual Cumberland Trail Summit. Your presence made this event unforgettable! We had a blast getting to participate in some of the adventures with you. With lessons learned, we're already planning next year's summit to be even grander.
