Wednesday, volunteers from the Appalachian Trail Club and the A-T Conservancy worked on a section of the trail in Botetourt County.
The group goes out and checks the lines between the trails and private property.
This was the first time this year members have been out, so they had plenty of spots that needed to be cut back.
"We have 6-people out here today and we'll be lucky if we do a little over a thousand feet of trail. So, you can just imagine, we're talking about 70-thousand feet of trail 'cause we actually have to do both sides of the Appalachian Trail cooridor," explains Mike Vaughn, President of the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club.
Volunteers say boundary monitoring is important to keep the trail from moving onto private land and vice versa.
They say in the past there have been issues with ATVs, illegal logging and hunters.
