November 4, 2017. Ridge Trail Day 2017 was a great success! If you don’t already know, Ridge Trail Day is the Ridge Trail Council’s largest event, with hundreds of volunteers participating around the region. We partner with REI Co-op and local land managers to host a myriad of volunteer trail work parties to build and improve sections of the Ridge Trail.

Ridge to Bridge

Everyone enjoys tasty snacks and drinks at staffed rest stops and a catered trail-side lunch. 2018 registration is open now!
