CVTC is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to improving the trails in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. In addition to regular work sessions CVTC participates in special projects including Riverday, National Public Lands Day, and National Trails Day.
Trail Work Sessions
Trail work projects are scheduled once a month from March through December, usually on the third Saturday of the month. Anyone can be a trail work volunteer; no experience, special skills, or special tools are required. Volunteers clear new trails, install drainage systems, build bridges and steps, and perform many other vital maintenance functions. Materials are provided by the National Park Service. Fully trained crew leaders direct each project.
The Adopt-A-Trail Program matches interested groups (Scouts, hiking clubs, outdoor groups, bridle clubs, etc.) with a particular trail. Volunteers from the group periodically inspect the trail, report on its condition, perform all routine maintenance tasks, and make improvements. Groups are recognized for their service and gain satisfaction from caring for "their" trail.
