Roving Trail Team


The Trail Conference stewards over 2,000 miles of trails from the Delaware Water Gap to the Catskills, and sometimes jobs arise that can’t be handled by a local Maintainer or Trail Crew. That’s where Roving Trail Teams come in! 



By signing up to our Roving Trail Team emailing list, you’ll hear about all the local opportunities to help out such as maintaining, clipping, reblazing, building, or restoring trails under the guidance of other volunteers or staff. Whenever an opportunity comes up we’ll send out an email to the list, and you can jump on to each adventure you’d like to take part in. Not interested or available? No worries, simply don’t respond! It’s totally up to you what opportunities you take.

This is a great option for people who want to travel and see different trails and parks. The only qualification to join the team is a sense of enthusiasm and willingness to work hard (surrounded by stunning vistas). We encourage everyone to take our Trail Maintenance Workshop before signing onto the list, but all Roving Trail Team events will welcome people new to trail work.
