Hiking and horseback riding have long been popular pastimes that can be both leisurely and adventurous depending your preference. California is full of excellent hiking trails. There are intense hikes through the southern desert areas and coastal beaches as well as challenging hikes in the northern mountain ranges. There are hiking trails available during any season, winter to fall. These hiking trails all require some maintenance and care to ensure they are safe and sustain their natural beauty.
Hiking enthusiasts and park lovers in Union County, California are being invited to “Adopt-A-Trail” in the Watchung Reservation. The new program will be kicked off on March 8th with an orientation and general meeting for any interested trail stewards wanting to volunteer to maintain the beauty of the park by caring for any of the 39 miles of bridle and hiking trails in the reservation.
Volunteers in the program are asked to commit to the preservation of the trail or bridle ways for a minimum of two years as a means to foster a relationship with the park and what the trailways have to offer. As a trail adopter, volunteers will be in charge of removing litter, minor pruning, clearing drainage pipes and remarking the trail when needed.
If you are interested in adopting a trail or would like to learn more at their informative meeting, call (908) 527-4231.
