Roaring Plains Trail Maintenance and Party!

Roaring Plains is the newest Wilderness Area and my personal favorite as I have spent a lot of great time up there in the sky....the highest part of the eastern continental divide in our area! We will be helping the Monongahela National Forest Service do maintenance cutting back the growth and enjoying some of the finest views in the Mid-atlantic area! Since we will be working hard, that means we will play hard on saturday night as the forest service has reserved Laneville Cabin for our use, but bring a tent anyway as this is a very popular trip....and for good reason and the cabin sleeps 12 and 20 have already signed up! This trip is cross posted from Washington Backpackers Meetup Group, but I got the green light to add more. If you have never been in this area before, this is a place you will never forget as you will be looking DOWN on Dolly Sods from nearly a 1000' higher up. We will walk Roaring Plains Trail cutting back the growth along its 6 mile length, then go back to Laneville Cabin to make a great meal such as turkey and mashed potatoes, or steak over a fire and enjoy the night, then take a great hike across the top Sunday to enjoy the outstanding views...oh and if it's hot, Red Creek is next to the cabin to take a dip in!

    Please bring work gloves and be prepared for rain, just in case, but only calling ofr a 30% chance, however you always go prepared as one can never be sure!

    Yes, Stanley, they do. I am going to fry a turkey on Saturday night, so let me know if you want to chip in for community dinner. Give me a call by Thursday at noon, so we can go over the details. My cell is[masked]-4848. The cabin has a kitchen, but assume you will be tent camping in the yard. Roaring Plains is as unique and beautiful a place as there is around!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
