National Trails Day

Do you want to get your hands dirty? Grab a shovel and volunteer for National Trails Day. Every year in the beginning of June, hundreds of community members join GVLT for a morning of hard work to maintain or build our community trails. This event is free and open to the public.




Highland Glen Nature Preserve






Stay tuned for details about our 2020 National Trails Day project! Save the date for Saturday June 6th.

National Trails Day 2019 Information:

This year we’ll be improving single track trails at the Highland Glen Nature Preserve. Highland Glen is an extensive single track trail system. Bozeman Health grants public access to the community to use the Highland Glen Nature Preserve as part of an outdoor healthy lifestyle. We’re excited to be working with our partners at Bozeman Health to improve the trails. Trail work will include enhancing rolling drain dips, de-berming, improving switchbacks into climbing turns, smoothing out tread, weed pulling and more.  No registration or experience is necessary, bring your family, friends and coworkers for a morning of volunteer service for our community trails.

Please wear layers, sunscreen, and closed toed shoes. Gloves are recommended.

If you have rock rakes, spade shovels, or pulaskis, please bring them.

We will meet at the southeast corner of Ellis and Highland. Parking is available at two parking lots for Softball Complex across the street. Highland Blvd. is closed for construction just off of Main Street. There are two detours in the map below which take you to both parking areas for the Softball Complex.

At the headquarters tent, you’ll check in and hear from our Trails Team for a short orientation and safety talk.  Breakfast goodies will be provided, and we’ll meet for a free picnic lunch at noon once our work is complete.

Big thanks to our lead sponsors, Evergoods and REI! Thanks to the many other businesses who have supported Trails Day and the Trails Challenge below.
