One Day — That's all we ask
People are getting the message when they pass
volunteer trail crews who are working on the trail or read it in AMC
Outdoors and other publications. If you're using trails for recreation
(hiking, biking, skiing, whatever) you should also contribute to their
maintenance. Where do you recreate? Who maintains those trails? If you don't
know, ask.

We do everything from digging in the dirt, clipping
branches and painting blazes, to moving rocks, building steps, changing and
building trails. Every project is different and has work for folks with all
abilities and experiences (including none). We teach you everything you need to
know — and why. Come join us to learn how and why the trails in the northeast
are some of the best maintained in the country, and to meet and be the people
responsible for them.

Just one day a year is all that's necessary if
everyone pitches in. But don't be surprised that you find trail work as fun,
creative, interesting and compelling as the rest of us who return time and time
again. The work is lots of fun — if it weren't, none of us would do
it!
