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.




Valley West






This year we’ll be improving trails and planting trees on the trails in and around Valley West. No registration 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 possible, please bring wheel barrows, rakes and shovels (make sure to put your name on them!).

We will meet at the pavilion at Valley West and assign locations and tasks from there. Breakfast goodies will be provided, and we’ll meet for a picnic lunch at noon once our work is complete. Valley West pavilion is located on the west side of town, on Clifden Dr. between Babcock and Durston.

During the opening weekend of REI’s Anniversary Sale on May 18-19, Oboz Footwear will be hosting its One More Tree/Get Rooted event. Try on a pair of Oboz and they’ll plant a tree during National Trails Day!
