From October 22 to October 31 Gold crew was lucky enough to work an awesome project with the US Forest Service at Davy Crockett National Forest. Though we didn’t get to see Bigfoot (I looked, don’t worry) we did get to hike the entirety of the 20-mile 4C Trail, a National Recreation Trail in East Texas.
Over the course of 6 days, our crew hiked and cleared over 20 miles of corridor and sawed through logs blocking the trail so that hikers wouldn’t have to create social reroute trails or potentially injure themselves trying to crawl over fallen trees.
We were also able to hike through 4 miles of wilderness area, in which no motorized equipment is allowed. We saw some amazing landscapes and experienced near-perfect weather, minus that one night where our tents flooded.
