Join Trails Rebooted and help us upgrade our trail system.
A big part of our work hinges on hikers seeing themselves as stewards of the lands they recreate on.
Whether that's sharing responsible recreation tips at a trailhead table, helping your friends get outside safely or simply taking a trash bag with them on their next hike to clean up the trail, we love to see it.
To meet the need of the many people learning to love Washington's trails, WTA is working with partners to build more, and more sustainable trails statewide, from Spokane to the Columbia River Gorge; from the North Cascades to the mountains a short drive from Puget Sound. Some parts of the state are getting special focus due to their potential for future visitation.
Volunteerism is core to WTA's work. More than 75% of our trail work goes towards Trails Rebooted routes.
78% of our hiking guide content includes hikes written by volunteers correspondents. And our outreach and advocacy efforts are partially driven by volunteer ambassadors; people just like you who care about showing up for trails.
