Information about the MST at Falls Lake

How we build trail at Falls Lake

We need your help to build the final few miles of MST at Falls Lake! We've already completed 60 miles, and now we're extending the trail into the Penny's Bend Natural Area at the northwestern end of Falls Lake. New volunteers and volunteer groups are always welcome, but YOU MUST REGISTER below so we have enough tools and work projects.

After the workday, the US Army Corps of Engineers is hosting a cookout (hotdogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers) to thank all volunteers for their help.


Workday: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Cookout: 5:00 pm

FMST will provide tools for the workday, but feel free to bring loppers, bowsaws, and mattocks. Please wear work clothes and bring a bag lunch, plenty of water, work gloves, hiking boots, and sunscreen.

Sorry no dogs allowed at our workdays for safety reasons. If you are under the age of 12, please consult Jeff Brewer ( or 919-868-6274) before attending workdays.

Your breakfast for these trail workdays is provided by
