East Hampton Trails Preservation Society


The more you know every foot of a place,

the more power you have in defending it.

  ---Brent Martin, former executive director of

Chattahoocee National Forest, GA


This month we are celebrating our Adopt-a-Trail program with hikes led by members who have “adopted” a trail or a section of a trail as their own special path.  Adopters make routine visits to their trail to check the condition of the trail, pick up debris, and report any obstacles to the Maintenance Committee.  The month will be capped off with a Moveable Feast in honor of the participants and all those who protect and preserve our trails.

For further information call

Note:  If the weather on the day of hike is inclement and you are not sure the hike is on, we recommend that you call the hike leader before setting out.
