Trail Trekkers

Program Description


Trail Trekkers is a volunteer-based program guided by Fayetteville Park and Recreation to improve the quality of life in Fayetteville by providing and modeling proper trail etiquette and safety as well as assisting users in trail navigation.

On foot or by bicycle, Trail Trekker volunteers provide safety, education, and assistance to all trail users in the City of Fayetteville. This year-round program aims to take all measures possible to ensure that Park and Trail patrons are assisted and protected by positive community members.
