Trail Managers & Adopters are a core group of volunteers who donate countless hours to the monitoring and maintenance of the NET.  They are our on-the-ground responders to trail problems and are the ones you can thank when blazes are refreshed, a bridge is built or signs are installed.  Our trail volunteers are a diverse group, ranging from retirees, college and university outing clubs, friends' groups, and landowners. 

Trail Adoption occurs when an individual or group takes on responsibility for a specific trail section.  These stewards work closely with CFPA or AMC staff to ensure a safe and enjoyable recreational experience.
