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.
