Trail Maintenance

Pertaining in some way to taking care of hiking trails.

Celebrate National Trails Day on June 5!

National Trails Day wouldn't be complete without celebrating the New England Scenic Trail (NET), one of Massachusetts' finest National Trails! Several volunteer section adopters, along with a few fantastic Western Massachusetts Chapter leaders, will be showcasing different parts of the trail on June 5th. All registration links are below and will provide the meeting time and length of each hike. Not familiar with the sections? Go to our new interactive Map!

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.
