Trail Maintainer | Ringwood State Park

Location Type: 
On Trail
Description: 

Ringwood State Park features both wild lands and landscaped gardens. Its 50+ miles of trail encompass leisurely historic strolls, rugged back-country hikes, and exciting mountain bike adventures - truly, Ringwood State Park has something for everyone. We hope you choose to help this park by volunteering as a Trail Maintainer! 

 

Description continued: 

Trail Conference volunteers are outdoor-loving people who want to make a difference. People just like you!

The majority of our 1,700+ volunteers are the dedicated Trail Maintainers. Each Trail Maintainer "adopts" a section of trail to ensure the best possible experience for fellow users. Responsibilities include keeping the trail clear, making sure it's well-marked, and reporting major issues. Each Maintainer is expected to hike and care for their adopted trail at least twice a year and report their efforts back to the Trail Conference.

No experience is necessary. Training is provided through our Introduction to Trail Maintenance workshops or with the experienced volunteer who serves as the Trail Supervisor in your region.
