With about 60 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails in our park, it takes a lot of volunteers to maintain things. As often as possible we send out trail crews to maintain trails, clear fallen trees, repair bridges, and even build new trails. Why do we devote so much of our free time to doing this? Well, quite frankly, it’s fun. The trail maintainers are a committed and friendly group of volunteers that enjoy the outdoors and like doing something to benefit the park.
What skills are needed to be a trail maintainer? Almost none. If you can hike a trail and carry a tool or two, you have what it takes. We even offer occasional training on how to use a chainsaw or build a trail. Many volunteers have even adopted a section of trail to maintain throughout the year.
If you think you might want to join us, just drop us a note on the volunteering page. Let us know you’re interested in trail maintenance, and we will let you know how to get involved.
Here’s a .pdf version of our latest trail map. The file is kind of large, so give it a moment to load.
The Trail Problem Reporting process is the best way for you to communicate a problem with one of the trails. Just complete the form below and the trail crew will address the problem as soon as possible. Thanks for letting us know!

TRAIL PROBLEM REPORTING PROCESS
Here’s an explanation of how the process works.
The Adopt-A-Trail program is vital to maintaining the trails at Cloudland Canyon. Below is a list of the trails along with the current adopted parent. Each adopter has agreed to maintain and monitor the condition of their trail and to alert the trail crew of problems that need attention.
