Get Involved

Local trail groups handle significant ongoing trail maintenance efforts, raise money for equipment and materials through events like 5K's and memorial rides, and deploy trail monitors to assist riders or runners.  If you or your group are looking for a one-time or regular volunteer opportunity, contact one of these groups.  Better yet, pick one to join, and become part of a great team of folks caring for the GAP in your area.
