Adopt-a-Trail at Rollins, Winslow and Bear Brook State Park

The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation, Bureau of Trails has a new Adopt-a-Trail Program. The program was created to assist in the maintenance of over 5,000 non motorized multi-use trails in select state parks and state forests throughout New Hampshire.

The Adopt–a-Trail Program gives trail users an excellent opportunity to volunteer with friends and family, as well as fill a much needed void in the maintenance of the trails. For this pilot program, trails that are available for adoption are located in Bear Brook State Park, Rollins State Park, and Winslow State Park (Mount Kearsarge State Forest).  The program will consist of a training for those that are approved for trail adoption. The Bureau of Trails has teamed up with the Appalachian Mountain Club to aid in training and outreach efforts.
