G5 Trail Collective

G5 Stands for the Grandfather District and the 5 counties it covers - McDowell, Burke, Caldwell, Avery, and Watauga. The G5 Collective was conceived in the town of Old Fort as a solution to the lack of funding for trail maintenance and trail development projects in the Grandfather District. Since beginning in 2021, the G5 has organized over 10,000 volunteer hours, built 13 miles of new trail in Old Fort, raised over $4M for new trail construction in the Grandfather Ranger District, and helped usher in a revitalization of the Old Fort Community.
