Have you ever wanted to adopt your favorite trail?
You don’t have to ask for permission. Just do it.
I mean, you have to have permission to do maintenance on the trail that would be big enough to need tools, saws, and stuff like that.
But you don’t have to have permission to walk the trail and clean up trash or get minor tree limbs and sticks off the trail.
You can adopt your favorite trail and keep it clean and clear from litter and small debris any time you want without approval.
The more we do this on our favorite trails, the better we can make them for everyone.
What’s your favorite trail? Would you be willing to adopt it?
Please Support Hiking with Shawn
Alrighty folks, I hope you have enjoyed this content. I provide it for free and it takes a while to create. If you would be so kind enough to support my efforts, you can do so by sharing this post with others, especially on social media. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to see my latest videos, shorts and live streams. Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok for unique content that you will only find on those pages. You might also join my Southern Illinois Hiking & Outdoor Resources Group on Facebook, too!
You can also support me by becoming a Patreon Supporter for as little as $3/month and you can cancel anytime (no contracts or catches). Patreons get access to extra features, exclusive articles, sticker packs, gifts and more. Consider buying official Hiking with Shawn Merchandise as another way to support me. I spend a lot of money on Hiking with Shawn and because of extremely high public land permit fees, I make very little money in return so everything helps.
Thanks again for checking out another one of my articles and until next time, I’ll see you on the trail!
