Adopt a segment of the mancos spur Trail

For 2021 we are pleased to bring back our popular Trail Adoption program. Originally implemented in the summer of 2020 when our traditional group workdays were eliminated due to the pandemic, this program proved so popular that we are making it permanent. As an adopter, you will be responsible for a 1-2 mile segment of the Mancos Spur Trail. You'll be able to visit your segment on your own schedule as often as you like, but we do ask that you commit to a minimum of two trips to your segment per summer. The first trip should be a reconnaissance mission, where you scope out your segment and determine what work needs to be accomplished. Additional trip(s) will take care of the trailwork that is required.
MTG has a limited number of tools available to lend out, including loppers, hand saws, McLeods and pick-mattocks. We also provide some training in tool use and safety, and trail maintenance. You will have to fill out some paperwork for the Forest Service and watch a one-hour video going over the Forest Service's expectations and requirements. We ask that you keep us up to date on all the work you conduct, including filling out a report form after each trail visit.
