Join trail superheroes who are working hard to make your hikes awesome! We’d love for you to volunteer to see what trail building’s all about. Volunteers will help clear and lay down a new stretch of trail. All experience levels welcome!

If you want to meet some of the trail heroes who are working hard to make your hikes awesome, we’d love to have you come out for a few hours to see what trail building’s all about. Trail Love Days celebrate all good things about the trail community—connecting with nature, meeting great people, and creating a little trail magic.

If you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, come on out and help us keep your trails great. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about what we do, plus you’ll get snacks and a T-shirt. No experience is necessary, but space is limited.

Give a few hours of your time, and you'll get:

  • Snacks
  • Giveaways
  • All the skills you need to help us improve trails, taught by our awesome trail professionals
  • The rewarding feeling of building a trail for future generations to enjoy and explore the outdoors

Build Your Next Adventure!

Want to make a weekend out of it? Everyone participating in Trail Love is invited to stay at the Welch Trail Education Center, our camp in Harriman State Park, before and/or after each event. You need your own transportation, and must give us notice when you sign up that you’d like to stay over. Come work, play, and camp with us!

Don't have a car? No problem! The Ramapo Trail Crew can pick you up from the Ramapo College Short Line Bus station right across the street from Ramapo Valley County Reservation. Just be sure to give us 48 hours notice, so we know to expect you!

Space is limited to 12 people, so sign up now!
