Outdoor recreation is vital to the physical and economic health of Grand County. Maintaining multi-use trails is critical to sustaining our outdoor recreation opportunities. Due to budget cuts, land management agencies have been unable to provide the intensive, consistent monitoring and maintenance required to keep trails accessible for all users. Increasingly, these agencies and the local community have looked to Headwaters Trails Alliance (HTA) to provide the financial resources, leadership, management, and supervision for necessary trail maintenance.
The Adopt-A-Trail program (AATP) allows groups, businesses, and individuals to provide some of the labor hours and resources needed to repair and maintain the trails. Based on a collaborative effort involving Headwaters Trails Alliance, the US Forest Service, Grand County, Winter Park Resort, Town of Fraser, Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District, and committed adopters and volunteers, the Adopt a Trail Program has become a vital resource for necessary trail maintenance throughout the county.
Please consider volunteering to adopt a trail to continue this longstanding effort to protect our public lands and recreation access.
