Adopt-a-Trail

Responsibilities for trail adoption/maintainance include: cleaning out leaves and debris in drainage structures, keeping the trail clear of blowdowns, brush and annual vegetation, maintaining well-defined paint blazes, blocking in unofficial trails and campsites with brush and debris, making an assessment of the condition of the trail and listing problems that need attention, reporting on signs that are missing, inaccurate, damaged or needed. Also conduct walk-throughs of the trail – at least twice a year (spring/fall), submit work trip reports and report major problems to the Trail Coordinator.
