Trip #59 Hungry Mother State Park, VA

American Hiking Society 1424 Fenwick Ln, Downtown Silver Spring, Silver Spring, MD, USA

Project Description: Volunteers will be working on improving the park’s amphitheater and surrounding area, used by numerous hikers and other guests as a way station for picnicking or quiet place to rest. Tasks will include root removal, grooming, laying mulch, brush and vegetation removal, installing benches and lighting, painting, and planting trees. An increase in the number of users to the park’s existing trails has made it crucial to provide sustainable trails and recreation areas to meet this increased demand.

The park will offer volunteers either a bike ride on the Historical Virginia Creeper Trail or a day hike at Grayson Highlands State Park.
