Adopt-A-Trail Program

The Baxter State Park Adopt-A-Trail Program is a great opportunity for both volunteers and the Park. There are many volunteers that would like to give back to the Park that has brought them many great memories, and this program gives the volunteer ownership of the maintenance of a selected trail. Trail Adopters have the opportunity to work more independently on an adopted trail of their choice during multiple visits throughout the season. The contributions that Trail Adopters bring to the Park allow for the necessary basic maintenance of trails to keep corridors open and blazed, and prevent further erosion. These types of contributions and support allow the Maine Conservation Corps trail teams the time to concentrate on other technical projects.

**As this is the first year of the new Adopt-A-Trail program, there is a participation cap for 2017 at ten individual participants and/or groups (10 Ad optable Trails). This will ensure the Park’s ability to manage this new program most efficiently.**

The deadline for application submission is April 30th, 2017.
