Consider Becoming
Trail Steward!
   A rewarding way to contribute to our local trail effort is by becoming a Trail Steward. Being a Trail Steward means maintaining a section of trail, usually 0.5 to 1.5 miles, by clearing downed branches, cutting back side growth, and checking/replacing trail markers. Also, the Stewards are the "eyes" of the trail. They report major problems, such as large trees down, so that our certified chain sawyers can remove them. Generally, stewards check their sections every 5 to 6 weeks, April through September.

   Most Stewards agree that they develop a sense of pride and ownership of that one section of trail that they know really well. They are the volunteers who make it possible for other hikers, bird watchers, wildflower enthusiasts and photographers to enjoy the trail.

  Do consider joining our dedicated group of Stewards, who now maintain approximately 33 miles of trail.
