Please note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, scheduled volunteer days are on hold.
However - if you're interested in helping out by setting out on your own personal or family/friends bubble self-directed volunteer adventure to help clean, clear, fix, or finish a local trail, please give us a shout. We'll get you set up and ensure the local trail managers know, too.
Enjoy local trails and be courteous to other users.
