Site Info – The 2011 SCA Trail Corps crew for the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests will be working on the Glenwood-Pedlar Ranger Districts, specifically in the Big Levels region of the Sherando Lake Recreation Area. The area is popular with hikers and mountain bikers.
The George Washington & Jefferson National Forests cover 1.8 million acres of mountains and gorges, mostly in Virginia, but also including small slices of West Virginia and Kentucky. The Glenwood-Pedlar Ranger Districts run northeast of Roanoke. The Appalachian National Scenic Trail and Blueridge Parkway both run through the districts.
Set in a hardwood forest, Glenwood-Pedlar Ranger Districts are home to black bears, white-tailed deer, trout, bass, ruff grouse, and many other species of mammals, fish, and birds. There is also a great deal of historic sites on the districts.
The 2011 GWJeff Trail Corps team is excited to bring their spirit and service to the Glenwood-Pedlar Ranger Districts this summer.
