Volunteer for Trailwork

Ever wonder how the 10+ miles of trail on Candy and Badger stay in good shape? It’s thanks to volunteers completing work planned out by our trailmaster, Jim Langdon.

Every spring and fall, our trailmaster leads regular work parties on the peaks, completing trail maintenance and improvements. The work ranges from raking gravel back on to the trails, to removing weeds and general tread repair.

We’re always in need of new volunteers. If you’re interested, contact Jim by email at Trailmaster@friendsofbadger.org and let him know. Mention “add me to your trail work list” so you’ll always know when the next work party is coming up.
