MTA is always looking for more Volunteers. Here is your chance to hit the ground running this spring with our hard-working trail crew.

A typical volunteer year consists of two things:

  1. Monthly group trail work dates.
  2. And if you wish, the “Adopt a trail” effort to maintain a trail on your own schedule

To give you a sense of the enormous amount of time and dedication it takes to keep our trails system running, here is a look at the volunteer hours performed over some past years:

2016-2017 Winter Season = 98.75 hrs | 2014 Mountain Biking Season = 315.5 hrs | 2014-2015 Winter Season = 110.5 hrs

Of course any level of support will be greatly appreciated! Don’t worry about tools of the trade, we have a small arsenal at our disposal for you to borrow. As long as you have a willingness to work, and want to give back to the trails you love, we would love to have your help.

Public Trail Work Days

We also run monthly trail work days, at which anyone can volunteer.  It’s a great way to meet the Trail Crew and see the work that they put into our trails, and to lend a hand!  All public trail work days get underway at 8:00 AM at the Brook St. garage unless otherwise noted. These trail days will be for our larger projects. At these, smaller projects will also be identified at and assigned to individuals for midweek work.

2022 Public Trail Work Day Schedule:

  • April 24
  • May 1
  • May 15  – Rescheduled for May 22nd!
  • June 12
  • July 10
  • August 14

For more information about the trail crew, you can contact our Trail Crew Chief via the contact form here — just pick the Volunteering option.

Hope to see you this year, with a shovel in your hand of course!
