How Adopt-a-Trail Works

  • Through the Adopt-A-Trail program, short sections of trail are adopted by individuals, companies, schools and other groups.
  • The adopting party enters into an agreement with the City of Arvada, stating that they will be responsible for picking up litter along a specified portion of trail for a period of one year.
  • We request that trail adopters participate in a litter clean-up on their section of trail once per month.
  • The Parks Department provides trash bags and posts signs along the adopted trail, giving recognition to individuals or group volunteers.
