Can I carry out trail maintenance myself?

It is fine to do minor maintenance work such as trimming small branches across trails, providing the trail is on public land. For more extensive work, please check with the Committee first, by sending an email to or consider adopting a trail.  Contact the Trails Committee at to find out how, or read through our "Trails Maintenance Guidelines".
