Adopt a Trail Program
Once a section of trail has been constructed, the real work begins! A new trail will not keep its value without constant monitoring and maintenance. Trail adopters perform many jobs on the trail including picking up litter, mending fences, controlling weeds, and cutting brush. They are also the “eyes on the trail” and report larger issues to the owning agency. For questions or to volunteer use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page or call the trail manager at their corresponding telephone number.
