Position Details: 
Trail Maintainer
Follow a scenic cascade through a valley or a rugged trail to mountain views - get involved and join the Trail Conference volunteers and member clubs who maintain over 200 miles of trails in the Catskill Park and the neighboring Catskill Mountains region.  

Adopt a trail in the Catskill Park!

Would you love to adopt a trail in the Catskill Forest Preserve?

The smell of balsam, the famous Devils Path and Long Path, two peaks above 4000', and the best fly fishing around.

We are responsible for maintaining over 200 miles of trails in the Catskill Park and the surrounding region and almost always have an opening for a new trail maintainer.

Trail segments available for adoption range in length from one to two miles and span the difficulty range from easy to difficult hikes.  We work with potential trail maintainers to identify a section of trail that is right for their abilities and needs.

If you are interested in adopting a trail in the Catskill Mountains, please complete the information below.  That information will be forwarded to our volunteer Trails Chairs for the Catskill Mountains and they will contact you with information on trails that are available for adoption.

Trail maintainers must be members of the Trail Conference.

Training is available through annual Trail Maintenance workshops and through individual interactions with Trail Supervisors and Trails Chairs.
