Common Trail Needs

  • Clean-up from storm damage - limbs, trees, and trail damage
  • Erosion repairs and installation of erosion bars
  • Clearing overgrown or unsafe brush and vegetation
  • Picking up litter and trash
  • Maintaining trails markers - signs, blazes, kiosks


What is a Trail Steward?

The Trail Stewards are very familiar with the trails and have a long standing relationship with the ranger staff. All service visits and projects must be pre-approved by the Camps' Trail Steward. Because of the busy camp schedules, this approval should be done at least 30 days before the work day. The Camp Trail Steward will coordinate with the unit contact. The Trail Steward will work with the Rangers to ensure that materials, tools, and safety briefings are ready for the work crew when they arrive.
