Trail Work

The CTA is still open to anyone who loves trails. As a group of regular people coming together, we welcome new members and ideas. We’re all in for the trails and the more people and skills we have between us, the more we can get done. One of the most effective ways that the CTA advocates for trails and support outdoor recreation is though trail work.

Some of the most important work done by the CTA is trail work..

Trail work is hard and often dirty as jobs range from clearing brush and trees to digging trail and rehabbing eroded areas.

To provide a safe work experience for all, it is essential for each volunteer come properly prepared for the work day.
