Trail Stewardship

At our core, #TrailsRoc is about respecting and treating trails in a way that will leave them in good condition for generations of users to come.

One way we do this is by with our trail work days. From simple garbage pick ups to full blown trail building, this kind of work is an important and often thankless job. It also takes many man hours to complete.

Join us for our trail work days! Follow our Facebook page or check below for updates to our trail work schedule.

2020 Trail Work Schedule

Adopt A Trail – #TrailsRoc has partnered up with Many On The Genny and we have adopted a long stretch of the Finger Lakes Trail in Letchworth – We will now maintain and repair sections D through E, and E through F including all of the access trails in this stretch!

2020 Theme is  #StashYourTrash In addition to all of our trail work days, we are encouraging runners to pick up trash during your run and on instagram, twitter, and facebook use hashtag #StashYourTrash with #TrailsRoc to spread the word on cleaning up our parks
