Episode 187-Trail Volunteering

June 15, 2021

Whether you walk trails only a few kilometres long or are into big trails many hundreds of kilometres in distance the next time you put feet to the ground spare a thought for how the trail gets there and manages to stay in such good condition. While the state governments play a role in both the construction and maintenance of trails much of the work is done by volunteers; those unsung hero's who quietly get on with the job so that we who hike them, can do so in a comfortable fashion.

In this episode we talk to two trail volunteer groups about the role they play in proposing, building, and maintaining their respective trails.
