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.
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.
