Top of Pine Knob – July to August

After summitting Pine Knob the South Mountaineers continued working north on top of Pine Knob improving the trail. We removed large exposed rocks from center of trail that were causing hikers to walk toward outer edges and either crushed them or used as stones for dams. We installed stone check dams, and water bars.
