After hours of hiking the trails and picking up garbage, the group filled 15 bags of trash. They started Friday morning at Riverview Park and took the trail to Darden Towe Park. On the way to Darden Towe they filled all of the bags with trash and on the hike back, they picked them up from the side of the trail and hauled them away.
"A fair bit of trash, a lot of beer bottles ironically, and you know some things too heavy to pick up, but we just been getting up a lot of litter and having a good time," said Scott Wilcox, who helped clean the trail.
The cleanup wasn't all work - the crew says it was also a day of fun in the outdoors.
If you missed the cleanup but still want to help with the effort you have another chance. Friday night, Blue Mountain Brewery is giving 20 percent of its food proceeds to the Shenandoah Park Trust.
