Volunteers Needed...

trail workThe Midstate Trail has been a volunteer TEAM effort from its inception. Without the tireless efforts of trail maintainers, activists, hikers, nature lovers and guardians of the wild places, the Midstate Trail would not exist.

The maintenance along the Midstate Trail is all done by volunteers. The clear footpath stays that way because volunteer trail maintenance crews are trimming the foliage, creating water bars, building bridges and erecting signage. This constant trail maintenance ensures the best hiking experience for all travelers on the Midstate. The Midstate Trail needs YOUR help as well.

Trail Crew

     The Midstate Trail Committee, under the auspices of the Worcester Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club, continues the administration and maintenance of the Trail. The Committee is augmented by a larger group of resident volunteer maintainers, who, like you, are invaluable to the survival of the Midstate Trail. The AMC/Worcester Trails Committee is assisting with hike publicity and recruitment of maintainers. The Committee welcomes anyone willing to help maintain a part of this “close to home” trail.

Here are some things YOU can do...

     Your time and effort will ensure future generations will enjoy the Midstate Trail as well.
