After our thru hike in 2018 we started getting involved in the GDTA. We try to participate in as many trail building trips as possible every year (which might not be many) and when we can we hike sections or alternates.
In 2019 we participated in two trail building trips. One trip building the HRT (High Rock Trail) and another doing maintenance in the Malign Valley.
After our Malign Valley trip we hiked a loop – along the six passes alternate and back along the Malign Valley Trail.
In 2020 trail work was initially uncertain due to the COVID19 pandemic. Natasha was also pregnant with Toothless. Eventually trips were given the green light and we participated in a “walking trip” on the HRT to prepare it for opening.
