welcome.
The HMTC is an informal non-profit organization that has chosen a
trail stewardship role for Section 4 of the Pinhoti National Recreation Trail /
Millennium Legacy Trail.

All trail maintenance is done in accordance with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy 
standards. The "Appalachian Trail Design, Construction and Maintenance" manual can be 
purchased through the ATC Ultimate Trail Store for about $15.

Every Trail Maintainer should have a copy on their bookshelf. Trail maintenance is not 
complicated but there are standards that every one follows and the ATC is the authority.

mission statement.
1. To actively seek the preservation, protection and maintenance of all notable landmarks 
within Section 4 / Alabama - Pinhoti National Recreation Trail to include: trails, cliffs, 
bluffs, streams, woodlands, Horn Mountain Fire Tower and Scott Lake. Also, to seek the 
restoration of the natural state of all forest lands in this part of the Talladega National 
Forest, without going as far as Wilderness designation.

2. To re-establish and maintain the Civilian Conservation Corps Picnic Area at the Horn 
Mountain Fire Tower.

3. To establish and maintain a Trail Shelter and Designated Campsite at Scott Lake.

4. To establish and maintain a Trailhead parking area at Bull Gap.

5. To establish and maintain information boards, trash receptacles and trail logs at the 
Bulls Gap Trailhead and the Porter's Gap Trailhead.

6. To establish and maintain proper blue blazing, directional signage, bridges and any other 
necessary trail navigation aids throughout Section 4.

7. To provide training and outlets for anyone interested in learning responsible trail 
management practices.
