Be a Trail Builder for the Day: TU 1132

Event type: 
Workshop Number: 


Enjoy Sterling Forest and Multi-use Trails?  Help us make the trails even better!


We’re looking for adventure-seekers who aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, 
enjoy being outdoors, and want to give back.

The Trail Conference is hosting 2 Trail Love Weekends at Sterling Forest through October 2nd. We’re working hard to improve these trails for hikers, bikers, and horse riders, but we need your help. 

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

  • A friendly welcome from our Palisades Trail Crew at the trail head.
  • All the skills you need to help construct multi-use trails, taught by our awesome trail professionals.
  • Free T-shirt
  • The satisfaction of making a difference.
  • A FREE place to stay the night if you have a long drive or just want to camp out!
Bring your mountain bike (or unicycle!) to test out what you build!  Sorry horses, but you should probably stay home and come back another day to check out the trail when your person can give you their full attention.

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

Want to make a weekend out of it? Everyone participating in a Trail Love Weekend at Sterling Forest is invited to stay at the Welch Trail Education Center, our camp in Harriman State Park, before and/or after each event.  For FREE!  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!
