NEW MAP OF PIGEON RIVER COUNTRY
Our new map of the High Country Pathway and the Pigeon River Country is now available! It has up to date ownership, trail, and forest information. The new map costs $9 plus $1.50 for shipping and is available under Maps/Membership/Donations. Our Holiday Special has ended but you can still get the new map and Dale Franz' paperback book "The Pigeon River Country" by ordering them separately. The book includes some very interesting reminiscences from old timers as well as current information on the PRC.
As always your dollars support an intern working in the Pigeon River Country State Forest.
