Water Bar and Check Dams lower end of Pine Knob – April 2021

A few of us spent 2 days in the middle of the deep sunken section cutting 2 water bars through the 3′ – 4′ high bank there and lining with stones. Plus we installed check dams above to slow the flow of the water. The three people in the picture of us moving a rock are part of a family from Utah that was hiking the Maryland AT section and jumped in to help us.
