The South Side – May to July 2021

The south side of Pine Knob is a very steep highly eroded section of the Maryland Appalachian Trail. The Maryland South Mountaineers Trail Crew spent more than 3 months working our way up this slope adding water bars and check dams. We added on to work we had done over the previous 5 years. At first we added log dams but as we went up plenty of stone was available so we switched to stone about mid-point.
