The Huntsville Land Trust had a need to expand their trails on Monte Sano and Green Mountain. I chose to create a new trail on the Land Trust property. This new trail is located near the Land Trust parking lot at the top of the mountain on Cecil Ashburn Road and is now called the Lowery Trail. The new trail is a spur trail off of the Smoke Rise Trail and covers a distance of approximately 3/8 of a mile. My project involved the clearing of the new trail, the installation of water bars on the trail to prevent erosion, and the installation of two permanent benches at the beginning and the end of this new trail. This project was accomplished with help from my fellow scouts, donations from local businesses and friends, and took a total of 190 man hours to complete.
