Join the Trails Team!
We are searching for people to join the Trails Committee team and looking for folks to assist leading trail work trips. These people will be responsible for leading a small group of volunteers out to do general trail work during the weekend a few times a year. This work will keep our trails safe and enjoyable for all. Everyone has fun and it’s for a good cause! To join the team click here. Or for more information please send an email to Phil Coyne click here.
