September 28 - Section 3 Trail Completion
The completion of the trail along Rebecca Mountain was officially announced on September 28 at the National Public Lands Day celebration, which was held at the new Trammel Trailhead located on the southwest end of Section 3. The mornings activities included putting the finishing touches on the trailhead parking area, assembling the trail kiosk and also a good bit of trail maintenance north of the trailhead.
In a larger sense, the celebration was also about completely finishing the Pinhoti Trail from the
southern boundary of the Talladega National Forest, east of Sylacauga, to the northern terminus, north
of Piedmont, for a total of 138.2 miles. This has been a consistent effort that has spanned more than 4
decades. Congrats to everyone who has contributed in any way to the dream.
