In addition to holding regular trail work sessions, trail managers across the country have found that adopt-a-spot programs are effective in maintaining trail conditions. Now that sections of Cricket Frog Trail are open to the public, Newton Trails is launching a rail trail adopt-a-spot program.
Participants in the program are asked to perform light trail maintenance, including removal of small branches and litter, as well as inspections of signage and trail conditions.
Businesses, community groups, families, and individuals are invited to adopt a spot of trail that appeals to them. Most "spots" will run from one road crossing to another. However, Newton Trails is open to proposals for varying sections of the trail.
Following a six-month trial period, Newton Trails will erect a sign recognizing the adopter. A Newton Trails membership is required for participation in the program.
Please contact us for assistance in selecting a section of trail to adopt.
