Natural Environment Trails Volunteers
Toronto’s natural surface trail network is a popular destination for mountain bikers, hikers, runners, dog-walkers and nature enthusiasts. Good trail design and maintenance helps protect the natural environment, keep trail users safe and ensure an enjoyable trail experience. As a volunteer you will:
- Re-route trails away from unsafe and eroded areas
- Rock armour over exposed tree roots
- Build safe and sustainable water crossings
- Install interesting trail components
- Planting native trees and shrubs
- Closing trails for regeneration
All tools and training are provided, and no expertise is required.
There are two ways to help out:
