Elevated Trail Design subcontracted for Trail Dynamics on this unique maintenance project. Armstrong Creek Trail is located in the Grandfather Mountain district of Pisgah National Forest. It is a hiking-only trail that connects the Armstrong Creek fish hatchery with the Mountains-to-Sea trail as it approaches Mount Mitchell. The work consisted of tread rehabilitation, rock armoring, installation of stepping stones, machine built trail, hand built trail, corridor widening, and hazard tree removal. This project is a great example of Elevated’s ability to provide low-impact maintenance to existing trails, without ruining what made them great in the first place.
