Steps to Adopt-A-Trail

Step 1: Choose How You Want To Contribute

You can help out with either Volunteer Hours, a Financial Donation, or both. For Volunteer Hours, each trail requires a commitment to perform at least 50 hours of volunteer work. Each trail has a different Financial Donation required, from $1,000 up to $3,000, depending upon the location and popularity of the trail. Heavily traveled trails get more visibility, so their adoption costs are higher.

Step 2: Pick A Trail Section

First, see what is available. The map below provides a broad overview of the area and has all of the Adopt-A-Trail sections on it. Click on a section to see what trail it is, who has adopted it, or if it is available. Use the above table to see a list of all the trail sections and their current status.
