Adopt-A-Trail program seeking volunteers

The U.S. Forest Service’s Adopt-A-Trail on the Logan Ranger District is looking for those willing to do work to improve their favorite trail.

            Kathy Jo Pollock, Public Affairs Officer for the Uintah-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, said this program is a way to make a difference through volunteering to help keep the trail system accessible, clean and enjoyable.

            “Those interested in adopting a trail, individuals or organizations, can contact Lisa Thompson who is our trails coordinator for the Logan area,” said Pollock. “She will let them know what needs to be done on these trails. It may be minor work; it could just be trail clearing or some litter pickup.

            “We do have to have an agreement with the individuals doing the trail work and she will arrange for that.”

            Pollock said the Logan District has about 339 non-motorized and motorized trail miles. The trails vary in terrain, elevation, and difficulty level.

            “We encourage those getting involved to adopt a trail for a year but they can go at their own pace, determining when they will be available to get into the mountains and take care of their trail. They will have to be overseen by a Forest Service employee.”

            Contact person for the program, Lisa Thompson, is available at <a href=”tel:801-690-4287″ target=”_blank”>801-690-4287</a>.
