Volunteer Trail Steward

Volunteer Trail Steward

ADK Volunteer Trail Stewards are dedicated volunteer professionals who ensure trails are clear and safe for hikers to use. They play an essential role in monitoring and maintaining existing trails across the Adirondack Park, and sometimes lead and educate others on how to maintain trails.

Successful Volunteer Trail Stewards are comfortable working in the backcountry wilderness, sometimes alone and/or in challenging weather conditions, and see their role as active stewards of the Forest Preserve and ambassadors for ADK. Knowledge of ADK’s mission and goals, principles of Leave No Trace, and NYS DEC regulations are required.

Volunteer Trail Stewards must be at least 18 years of age.
