Mammoth Lakes Trail System Adopt A Trail

Project Description: The Adopt A Trail program was originally recommended in the Town of Mammoth Lakes Trail System Master plan. Initiated in fall of 2019, the program ensures our local trails, lakes and trailheads remain well-kept, safe and enjoyable. The program provides opportunities to support trail facilities through financial sponsorship and/or volunteer stewardship. Adoptee support will help keep local trails, trailheads and lakes safe, fun, and well-maintained for years to come! Groups, organizations or individuals wishing to adopt a facility can sign up at Sponsorship adoptee donations will support trail maintenance efforts and the administrative costs associated with the program.  Volunteer adoptees will perform light maintenance and litter pick up. It is hoped that each facility will be sponsored financially and be maintained by volunteers to maximize engagement, stewardship and sustainability.
