  • Coordinate and train hundreds of volunteers to lead trail improvement projects, maintain dozens of campsites and trailheads, and passionately care for the Trail,
  • Renew and replace bridges, boardwalks, trailhead signs, and stair ways that are due for updates and fixes,
  • Enhance the Trail with mindful reroutes, new loops, and spurs to scenic locations,
  • Clear and weed whip, every year, the 1.7 million feet of the SHT,
  • Ensure the Trail’s corridor, integrity, and future is secured by partnering with dozens of public and private landowners, and
  • Provide you with up-to-date trail conditions, the acclaimed Guide to the SHT, maps, and hundreds of signs so you can safely find your way along the Trail.
