The partially completed Mountains-to-Sea Trail in North Carolina will eventually stretch 930 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the Appalachian Mountains. Over the past 25 years, Scouts and many other volunteers have worked to mark and clear different sections of the trail. They’ve finished about half of it, but trail-building will be needed for many years to come.
Watch as North Carolina Scouts fend off ticks, poison ivy and some thick vegetation to help clear a portion of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. To learn more about the project, see the “Trail Builders” article in the August 2010 issue of Boys’ Life magazine.
