We rely on volunteers to help build trails, steward land, run events, and much more. There are many ways to volunteer:
Events. We hold several trail work events throughout the summer, some will be bike trail focused, some will be hiking trails. Come along either on week day evening, or a weekend day. For full day events Inland Woods + Trails will provide snacks and refreshments. Keep and eye out on social media and our Events page.
Trail work may be helping build new trails, or keeping existing trails in good shape: root clipping, rock work, tree cutting, brush hauling, trail shaping. We host several events over the year and would welcome help: leading bike tours, Bethel Village Trails shop move in/out, land stewardship (tree planting, mowing, signage).
Adopt A Trail. Do you hike the Summit Ridge Trail every week in the summer, or ride Helix bike trail regularly at lunch time? We are looking for people who often visit a particular trail and would like to help us keep it in good shape. The main responsibility of an adopter is to let us know the condition of the trail: was a bridge washed out by a flood? Is there a big mud puddle on the trail? Did a huge tree fall while no one was looking? We’d love to here about it so we can make a plan to fix up your favorite trail. If you want to do more, then we can arrange to meet you so you can help, or if you have the skills, we can loan you some tools and materials. Every spring we look for volunteers to hike the trails, some folks will leaf blow a bike trail for us, and if we have specific work we are doing on your trail, you can come and help.
