Volunteers Create Additional Trail

The Fieldale Trail has really grown in popularity since the opening of the new Phase II extension, but people keep asking when will it get longer. Today with help from the "Friends of the Fieldale Trail" a team from the Smith River Trail System's Adopt-A-Trail Program, the Dan River Basin Association extended the Fieldale Trail by another 1/4 mile. The new section of trail was walked by seven visitors before we even could finish packing up our tools! It is now open and ready for you to enjoy-- happy hiking!
