Year 22 of BreakAway!
Over 160 college students from nine colleges in 13 states participated in the CTC Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program in March this year. Florida State, University of Delaware, Michigan State, Pitt, University of Kansas, Wartburg College (Iowa) and the university of Colorado (Boulder) sent students to work on the CT.
Work in the first two weeks completed the last 8,264 feet (1.56 mi or 12.52 furlongs) in the Graysville Segment heading north to the end of state property – about 200 feet short of TN 29. In
Weeks two and three the focus was the south side of the McGill Creek Segment in Rhea County. A steep, rocky area where the CTC paid crew had already built over 100 rock steps.
The pay off for the McGill Creek Segment was an opportunity for a swim break at beautiful McGill Creek Falls.
