Wilson Creek Area Trail Improvement Timeline
Highlights of our work in Wilson Creek and the Grandfather District of Pisgah National Forest
The Alliance has been advocating for trails in Pisgah since our inception, and starting in 2020, the Mortimer Trails Project has become a key piece in our work in the forest.
The plans all of these projects are to provide better functioning trails, with a strong focus on environmental sustainability and user needs.
The chapter has been leveraging resources to make all of this happen, through Forest Service collaboration, grants, and partnerships with other organizations.
Listed below are just some of the many highlights of our 8 years of work in Pisgah National Forest.
