MOUNT VERNON TRAIL CORPS | OVERVIEW
If you’ve ever wended your way through the woods of Little Mountain Park, you know that these pristine trails are built to last. MVPF’s Trail Corps prides itself on creating a lasting and sustainable trail system that helps people explore the natural beauty of this mountain while also giving unique trails to explore. And we cannot do it without you.
The Little Mountain trail network maintains over ten miles of trails, built off the backs of over 17,000 volunteer hours. The elaborate trails snake from the peak to floor of Little Mountain, containing many levels of skill. Little Mountain and its trail builders pride on creating a network of varied trails to appeal to the entire local community.
Mount Vernon Parks Foundation Trail Corps relies on generous donations to help care for and advance the many additions they’ve added to Little Mountain Park. We have designed and installed signs across the mountain to help with trail identification. Maps are available for hikers and bikers alike to know which trails they’re on and what is accessible to them. We have also partnered with REI to create a free, GPS-driven map app for following the trails with your smart phone, which can be found here.
Construction and maintenance of the Little Mountain trail system is an always-evolving process. Ten times a year, we organize Saturday volunteer trail days where we invite people out to work on the trail system. We are always looking for sponsors for these work parties. If your business would like to donate $400 to help cover insurance, feeding our volunteers, and other costs of maintaining these trails, please contact us. This park is the community’s, and it takes a community to keep it looking great.
For those that want to get their hands dirty, volunteers are always wanted on our trail building days. All we need if your enthusiasm for helping our parks grow and prosper, and we’ll provide the rest. Stay up to date by following us on Facebook and this website, and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter. You can also sign up for trail building days below.
