Get Involved


BRATTS is an all-volunteer organization and we always welcome help from interested people.

We conduct numerous trail maintenance days each year, and we post information about the events on this siteĀ and on our Facebook Page.

Whenever we post information about an event we will let you know what kind of help we need, when and where to meet, and how long the event is expected to last.

If you have questions about volunteering, please use the Contact menu above.


BRATTS conducts an “Adopt-A-Trail” program where individuals or organizations can “adopt” a trail.  Responsibilities include removing blowdowns, brushing, blazing, and cleaning waterbars.  All adopters must be members of BRATTS (membership is free!)

We have trails up for adoption!  If you’re interested in becoming a trail adopter, please contact Jim at
