Tour de Cut

get more from BRO

The Virginia Forest Watch and the Virginia chapter of the Sierra Club have organized a series of hikes that highlight areas within our national forests scheduled to be logged in the near future. The hikes are designed to show the public the negative impacts wrought by logging, road building, mineral development, and off-road routes on our public land. Previous hikes have explored old growth that was subsequently cut as well as roadless areas targeted for resource extraction.

This year’s hikes will explore the crest of Walker Mountain (threatened by a timber sale and logging road), and the ridgetop of North Mountain (slated for wind turbine development and logging).  A hike will also explore the newly designated Mountain Lake Wilderness.

Visit Virginia Forest Watch for more.
