Trail Crew Projects

The Mountain Stewards Trail Crew is made up of retired men who work annually on Tuesdays and Thursdays performing approximately 1,000 hours of volunteer work for State and County governments and for other non-profit organizations. The work is done on a volunteer basis at no cost.

Each project is designed and planned by Mountain Stewards and the property owner provides the necessary materials for the work.

The crew also maintains all hiking trails that are built by them.

The crew began volunteer work in 2005 and have continued to provide support for the past fifteen years.

In that time frame, the Mountain Stewards have provided recreational and operational facilities to our customers valued at well over one million dollars in value.


Some of the facilities that we built in the last 15 years include:

  • Hiking Trails
  • Foot Bridges, some as long a 45-foot spans
  • Kiosks
  • Observation Towers
  • Picnic Pavilions
  • Moldering Toilets
  • Outdoor Classrooms
  • Horse Shelters
  • Canoe Take-Out and Put-In Blue Trails
  • Overnight Camp Sites
  • Handicap Trails including a ½ mile Raised Wooden Trail
  • Parking Lots
  • Memorial Facilities
  • Signage
  • Picnic Tables and Benches
  • Treatment of Hemlocks
  • And More
