Noble View Outdoor Center Trail Adopters

Noble View Outdoors Center Trail Adopters Needed!

Do you like walking in the woods? You can learn to care for the trails you enjoy by becoming an AMC Trail Adopter right here in Massachusetts. AMC’s Adopt-A-Trail program enables volunteers to take ownership on a section of specific trail and oversee basic maintenance of that trail. The prospective adopter chooses from a list of open trails in the Noble View trail network and plans at least one work trip per month to check on trail conditions, clear drainage areas, lop the corridor, and dig into small projects as well as report on larger trail issues.

Volunteer-led Activities to Resume after June 22nd

Although the COVID 19 pandemic is by no means over, AMC and the Berkshire Chapter are applying careful evidence-based risk management practices to chart a path forward for volunteer-led outdoor activities to resume safely. 

On June 22 we will begin offering volunteer-led activities in small groups employing social distancing measures. Group size will be capped at ten (10) participants including leaders. Activity leaders are receiving training on new trip safety protocols and procedures.
