SHARE Mountain Bike Club
Expansion of the Trail Boss Program
SHARE Mountain Bike Club (SHARE) is requesting Dig In funding to support the expansion of the SHARE Trail Boss Program to perform critical trail repairs and maintenance in Orange County, CA.
This program focuses on enabling a small number of highly involved and trained volunteers (trail bosses) to work at direction of the land managers on just-in-time trail improvements and maintenance. Under the direction of Orange County Parks Department rangers and the California State Parks’ environmental scientist, SHARE trail bosses will collaborate and help identify key trail development and maintenance needs throughout the 2017/2018 trail work season, then perform critical trail maintenance.
This program was piloted in 2017 in Santiago Oaks Canyon Regional Park and has been very successful. The program’s benefits are the completion of urgent trail maintenance that often goes unaddressed due to lack of resources; the continued sustainability of the parks’ trail systems; and improved public safety for all trail users.
