Trail Adoption Program

Do you love the trails at Mont Ste Marie? Do you have a favourite trail? Is it looking a little worse for wear?

As the trail network expands – and we are working hard at expanding it – the maintenance requirements increase as well. In order to keep up with the required maintenance we are looking for volunteer leads to take ‘ownership’ of a trail to keep them in pristine shape.

Trail Adopters should:

  • Keep the trail clear of trees through trimming and removing of dead fall
  • Rake it once or twice a year to help keep the trail dry – you will have access to Velo MSM leaf blowers
  • Do some light trail work to fix chronically wet sections – some tools are available for use, please request in advance

Questions?

  • I don’t have any experience doing trail work?
    • Not a problem! Experienced Velo MSM trail builders will be more than happy to guide you through the ramp up process
  • I would like to do more than just maintain the trail! I want to reroute or fix an unsustainable section, can I do that?
    • Yes, all that we ask is that you bring your proposal to the Velo board to ensure that it does not conflict with future projects in the planning stage.
