Adopt A Trail

The SPOT Adopt-a-Trail Program has been a successful means for community friends to help maintain and sustain the Salida Trail System. The system is divided into 43 sections. During the year, volunteers are asked to keep an eye on and maintain their trail sections and participate in trail projects. SPOT also participates in the annual Clean Up Green Up event in May, which is a great opportunity to clean the trail section.

If you are interested in adopting a trail, please contact us for available sections!
