Want to give back to your community? Adopt-a-trail.
The Freshwater Land Trust is seeking volunteers and organizations throughout Jefferson County to adopt a part of the 100 mile – plus Red Rock Trail System.
Here is the how it works.
The Trail System
The Red Rock Trail System is a network of trails, parks, bike lanes, and sidewalks in Jefferson County, Alabama. Through this trail system, the Land Trust goals are to increase and diversify community access to the outdoors while conserving some of Alabama’s most beautiful green spaces.
Red Rock is made up of six major corridors spanning Jefferson County. Each corridor consists of different types of trails that connect the county together. The main trails primarily follow the Birmingham area waterways.
Since 2010, the Land Trust has completed over 100 miles of trails throughout Jefferson County! Visit http://www.freshwaterlandtrust.org/find-a-trail/ to see which trails are near you.
Who Can Volunteer
Everyone is welcome!
The Freshwater Land Trust works with all people and organizations interested in caring for the Red Rock Trail System. Volunteers can include:
NeighborhoodAssociations, Sports Teams,Hiking,Running, Biking/Enthusiasts, Families, Individuals, Church Groups, School Groups, Senior Citizens, Garden Clubs
The trails need someone to look after and take care of them.
Examples of the activities:
Pick up litter, rake leaves, sweep trails, pull weeds, plant native plants, remove invasive plants, complete beautification or art installation projects, complete scouting projects, create educational signage, report potential trail hazards, illegal dumping, storm damage, or other trail concerns.
In a nutshell, a group will adopt a mile of trail and commit to a minimum of 2-hours of trail work every other month.
“We encourage anyone interested in giving back to their community and supporting the growing Red Rock Trail System to consider adopting a trail. It’s a fun way to meet other trail enthusiasts, spend time outdoors, and promote trails in the Greater Birmingham area!” said Carolyn Buck, Red Rock Trail System Director.
