Youth Trail Stewards

We believe it is necessary to invest in and educate our youth on how to care for our trails, become stewards of our public lands, and enjoy the outdoors. 

Our youth are our next generation of stewards and users of our trails and public lands.  We teach them trail maintenance basics, trail etiquette, and Leave No Trace Principles.  In 2023, our Trail Conservation Crew led over 135 youth (18 & under) through partnerships and programs with:

  • Adopt A Trail teams
  • Eagle Valley Outdoor Movement
  • The Cycle Effect
  • YouthPower 365
  • Rocky Mountain Youth Corps
  • Berry Creek Middle School
  • Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy
  • Battle Mountain Cross Country Team
  • Vail Mountain School
  • Mountain Recreation
  • Walking Mountains Science Center
  • Eagle Valley Elementary School
  • International Youth Conservation Corps
