Natural Bridge Appalachian Trail Club

Maintenance is the primary mission of the Natural Bridge Appalachian Trail Club (NBATC). Ninety miles of the Appalachian Trail in Nelson, Amherst, Rockbridge, Botetourt, and Bedford counties, from Tye River to Black Horse Gap are maintained by NBATC volunteers. Individual club members assume responsibility for small trail sections and work crews handle more difficult maintenance tasks. Volunteers welcome! Maintaining a 2,000 mile footpath entirely with volunteers is a worthy endeavor, not to mention it is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and stay physically fit!

NBATC also coordinates weekly local and regional guided hikes and work hikes.
