VVMTA Adopt A Trail Program
About Adopt A Trail
The VVMTA launched the Adopt A Trail (AAT) program in 2016 with 30 local volunteer teams adopting 30 trails to maintain. Since then, the program has grown to include 80 volunteer teams adopting over 70 trails across all land managers in Eagle County that are maintained by an army of local volunteer trail stewards.
You can see the full list of trails adopted and Adopt A Trail teams here. These are the people, businesses, and organizations that truly make this program possible and ensure we continue to have a great experience out on our trails!
