Red River Gorge Trail Crew

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to wear?
Wear clothing that can get dirty and that is appropriate for the weather.
Should I bring anything?
Yes. Team spirit and a willingness to learn and have fun!Work gloves, lunch, water, and if you want to use a chopping or digging tool -- heavy boots.
What will we be doing?
The projects are mostly in the wilderness using hand tools such as crosscut saws, axes, pulaskis, fire rakes, and pruners. The goal can be to clear fallen trees & brush, build small bridges, create steps, remove trash, and make new trails. Variety is the spice of this life!
My experience level is low, can I still help?
If you are willing to learn, we can teach you the basics of using any tool.
Who provides the tools?
The US Forest Service provides all of our tools.
Is there somewhere to camp?
Camping is free to volunteers Friday & Saturday nights in the Volunteer Site.
