Trail Maintenance

Overview & Schedule

Each year, people like you help to care for over 125 miles of trails in the Blue Hills Reservation.

Volunteers like you participate in our trail maintenance events from April to December.  For email updates about the Blue Hills and, to learn when new events are scheduled, sign up on the form belowSee dates for upcoming events and sign up by clicking here!




At trail events, you work under the supervision of a trail leader.  If you are interested in working on a specific section of trail on your own schedule, we offer the Adopt-A-Trail program.

2021 Trail Events

How do I get involved?

We are excited to invite you to participate in trail events!  Because of health concerns, there are some restrictions. To participate in a trail maintenance event, please:

  • Read and sign the electronic waiver (you just need to sign once for 2021)
  • Sign up for a trail event in advance.
  • Wear a mask
  • Wear gloves (please bring gloves if you have them)
  • Do not share tools with others
  • Keep a physical distance of 6 feet from others (who do not live with you)

Currently, scheduled trail events are listed below.  New dates will be added throughout the season.  These events will take place on weekdays and possibly Sundays.  We will update the list as we schedule other events, but your best bet is to sign up above for updates, so you’ll learn when new events are scheduled.
