At the Dogleg left to Annapolis Rock

The last sunken section of the AT on the way north to Annapolis Rock received some attention in early September 2021. We installed 3 stone water bars here to direct water off the Appalachian Trail, placing a check dam directly below each water bar. We have also installed 2 other check dams and have reinforced an existing log dam and log water bar. There is more work needed so we’ll install a few more stone check dams in to slow the flow of water down the slope.
