The HTA Adopt-A-Trail Program – Outdoor recreation is vital to the physical and economic health of Grand County. Maintenance of multi-use trails is a critical component of sustaining our outdoor recreation opportunities. Due to budget cuts, land management agencies in recent years 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 as well as the leadership, management, and supervision for necessary trail maintenance.
The Adopt-A-Trail program (AATP) gives groups and individuals the opportunity 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, USFS, Grand County, Winter Park Resort, Town of Fraser, Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District and committed adopters and volunteers, the AATP is flourishing.
