Roxbury’s Adopt-a-Trail Program

Having a favorite trail in town to hike can feel like a wonderful getaway close to home. When your piece of solitude is broken by trash or damage, you may feel like restoring it to its pristine, natural condition.

A perfect solution is to Adopt-A-Trail! Available trails are:

  • Veterans Park Yellow Trail
  • Veterans Park Green Trail
  • Veterans Park Blue Trail
  • Black River Trail
  • Riggs Trail

A sign naming you/your family/ business/group will be posted showing your affiliation at the kiosk of the trail.  Responsibilities would include:

  • Signing of contract for a one-year agreement
  • Minimum trail clean-ups of two times per year, early spring and early fall
  • Gloves and bags will be provided by Roxbury Recreation and DPW Department’s Clean Communities Program
  • Report to Roxbury Recreation any maintenance needed on the trail, such as a downed tree, stream blockage or missing trail markers
  • Report to Roxbury Recreation any damage on the trail, such as graffiti, structures, party spots

We appreciate volunteers like you to help maintain our growing trail system! Thanks!
