Monthly Hike

Somewhere between 55 and 60 people came out for the MTA First Day Outdoors Hike at the Black Bear Campground & Park at Lake James. Blue skies, cool temperatures, and at times a brisk wind greeted us as we hiked some of the trails at this new park. Thanks to everyone who “walked in” the new year with the MTA!

Monthly Hike

20 hikers took advantage of a clear and sunny day for a hike at Lake James State Park. The MTA sponsors a hike each month for members and their guests. 



Trail Cleanup by Scouts

Thanks to the Scouts from BSA Troop 369 led by Mark Greene for their cleanup efforts of the Peavine Trail in Marion on Saturday, February 10. 6 bags of trash were collected during the cleanup. The MTA thanks their efforts and will continue with this group throughout the year for other trail cleanups
