Do you already hike, bike, or run the National Lakeshore trails often? Are you looking for a way to make a difference?
With over 50 miles of trails in our national lakeshore, the park service cannot regularly monitor and survey the trail system. The Adopt-a-Trail Corp volunteers fill this gap by adopting one of the park’s trails. As trail stewards, members report trail conditions like downed trees, flooding or erosion, damaged or missing signs, and damaged boardwalks and stairs. A great benefit of this program is seeing the wonder of nature in all of its seasons.
