Do you love working outdoors? Are you the type of person that would take great pride in knowing local hikers are enjoying a well-groomed trail that you helped maintain? If so, then our Trails Committee needs volunteers like you! Our Chapter-maintained trails feature bright, visible blazes, sturdy footbridges, and wide, clear paths. Our volunteers work extremely hard to ensure our trails are free of litter, brush, and fallen trees. If you’d like to help keep our trails in tip-top condition and share in the pride we have for our trails, then please consider joining us on one of our trail projects!

And don't forget to check out our Trail Adopters Program below!

Trail Adopters Program

Have a trail you love to hike all the time or just want to have alittle piece of the woods to help maintain?  How about becoming a Trail Adopter!  Adopt a whole trail, or just a portion of it!  Trail Adopters periodically (preferably 2-4 times a year) hike their trail and report back any issues through our Trail Reports form!  Trail Adopters can take care of minor work like brushing, refreshing blazes, or clearing minor branches after storms.   Equipment provided!  Major blowdowns are taken care of by volunteers from the Trails Committee!  Contact our Trail Chair for more information at NATrails@outdoors.org!
