Adopt a Trail
The Kate Reed and Trevallyn trails may be closed at the moment but when they reopen they will be in prime condition thanks to our "Adopt a Trail" volunteers. If you see the "Trail Maintenance in Progress" signs out on the trails please slow down and hi & thanks!
If you find a tree across a trail take a screen shot of the trail on a map (eg Trailforks) and mark an X where the tree is. This will help us try and get the trees cleared quicker!
