How to Get Involved

TRAIL DAYS – SUSTAINABLE RECREATION

 

2021 Events: This year will be different. We are planning safe and fun Trail Days as we know you are eager to get back to work with us. Trails Days 2021 - Mammoth Lakes Trails System will be offering multiple volunteer opportunities spread throughout the season. Building new trails, hosting, fixing or installing signs and litter pick up are just a few of the opportunities that will be available. More information coming soon.  

 

Since 2009, the Trail Days program has provided trail-maintenance support to the Mammoth Lakes Trail System and offered locals and visitors the chance to make a big difference in the quality of some of the most loved trails and locations around Mammoth Lakes. From June through September, local and visiting volunteers meet up for scheduled half-day stewardship events, spending the morning beautifying the trails and facilities that need it most. There are projects for volunteers of every age, from picking up trash to rerouting trails and adding sustainability features such as rock work and drainage features - even painting picnic tables and installing signs!
