How we work.

With help from our supporters, we're closing gaps, forging partnerships, and securing funding.

Get outside.
We're here to help you explore the Ridge Trail. We provide maps, guided outings, work parties, and more.
Trail Advocacy.
We advocate for closing "gaps" in the trail,  sustainable trail design, and accessibility by foot, bike, or horse.
Fundraising.
We help secure funding for planning, acquisition, design, building, and maintenance of the Ridge Trail.
Stewardship.
Staff and volunteers work side-by-side with our many partners to build new trail and maintain existing Ridge Trail.

Projects in the pipeline.

The Ridge Trail Council’s work includes coordinating trail planning, encouraging public agencies and governments to dedicate sections of the trail, developing strategies for closing “gaps” in the trail, and stewardship and promotion of dedicated Ridge Trail. Here are a few recent highlights:
