- Better trail conditions: More trails stay rideable throughout the year!
- We strengthen our relationship with land managers by showing our commitment to the trails we use.
- We build community pride and ownership around our trails.
Questions to Consider
- Rules: Read the Trail Adoption Expectations and the Trail Adoption Guidebook.
- Capacity: Consider workload and time constraints for successful annual maintenance
- Training: What do you need? Have you gotten it through other local trail work opportunities?
- Helping Hands: Can you motivate the folks needed to make it happen?
- Scope: Do you understand the scope of the work?
- Location: Is the trail within a convenient range for maintenance?
Be Ready to Lead
As the “manager” of the trail, it is up to you to assemble your crews to maintain your trail. We do maintain a list of those who aren’t up for the commitment of adoption but are willing to be available as crew. We will help advertise your planned maintenance days as appropriate.
