Opportunity Details

Toronto’s natural surface trail network is a popular destination for mountain bikers, hikers, runners, dog-walkers and nature enthusiasts. As the City’s population increases, the pressure on natural areas from this recreational use intensifies. Good trail design and maintenance helps:

  • Keep trail users safe
  • Ensure an enjoyable trail experience

Our goal is to engage with volunteers interested in trail sustainability and natural environment protection to maintain and enhance our trail system. All tools and training are provided, and no expertise is required.
