Volunteer

We couldn’t have built a single mile of the amazing Olympic Discovery Trail without our wonderful volunteers. Consider being one of them!

Adopt-a-Trail Program
Our trail is divided into manageable sections which are maintained by volunteers. These teams are the ones who keep our wonderful trail looking so wonderful; mowing, leaf blowing, sign painting, invasive weed pulling, picking up litter, etc. We also maintain the ODT Olympic Adventure Route.
To become a member of an Adopt-a-Trail team, contact the AaT Manager at aatmgr@olympicdiscoverytrail.org
You can also contact your local AaT Manager to volunteer:
