Adopt-A-Trail

Olympic National Park has over 600 miles of trails across its 922,651 acres of land, 95% of which is designated wilderness. Located on western Washington's Olympic Peninsula, extreme weather conditions make maintaining these trails a tremendous feat. At Olympic, our volunteers are dedicated to helping us keep these trails accessible for our visitors. Adopt-A-Trail (AAT) is a voluntary trail adoption program available to motivated groups of volunteers from the communities surrounding Olympic National Park.
