trail maintenance

Great trails take us to amazing locations. Away from civilization, roads, and the monotony of everyday life, our trails seek out vistas and lookouts, rivers and lakes, and rugged terrain deep in the wild.

But this can put us at odds with the power of mother nature, and the environment around us. By having minimal impact on our surroundings - exposing the terrain, rather than changing it - our trails are often vulnerable to storms, flooding, slides, or other changes to the ecosystem.
