Adopt-a-trail Program

If there is an OHV trail in the tonto national forest that your club loves, adopt it!

Adopting organizations are expected to:

  • Complete at least 1 workday (2 recommneded) per year to inspect the trail or area and conduct the following
  • Keep the trail/area free of litter
  • Brush the trail/area to allow access
  • Report any issues beyond the scope of this agreement to TRĀL’s Adopt-a-trail coordinator
  • Conduct a safety talk with volunteers before each work event
  • Report volunteer hours to TRĀL adopt-a-trail coordinator for each work event
  • Represent your organization, TRĀL and the Forest service in a positive, professional and respectful manner
