Volunteer with Fellowship of the Wheel

Each season the Fellowship of the Wheel Trail Crew leads many Volunteer Trail Days, which are generally offered to the public on weeknight evenings and Saturday mornings in the Spring and early Summer. Trail Days allow you to support the trails in a non-financial, grassroots way. View our Calendar for a listing of current opportunities to get your hands dirty. If you are interested in scheduling a group of volunteers for a trail day that is not on our calendar, eg. with co-workers or for a project we are working on later in the season, please email us info@fotwheel.org.
Trail Days are informative, educational, and productive. Projects are focused on most aspects of professional trail construction; rough clearing, benching, rock armoring, and building bridges. Each project has tasks for volunteers of all backgrounds and skill levels.

A typical day lasts about three hours and usually includes drinks and a snack afterward. Fellowship of the Wheel provides all of the appropriate tools, although you may bring your own as well. Hiking boots, pants, work gloves, and water are recommended.

For 2021, there will be a number of opportunities to support the trails through attendance of Volunteer Trail Days. The FOTW Pro Trail Crew will be leading a variety of large projects from Saxon Hill to Carse Hills. Fellowship of the Wheel has received funding through grants from organizations like VMBA to help complete these sustainable trail upgrades, but largely depends on membership dues and corporate sponsorships to keep our Pro Trail Crew humming. Additionally, we hope to see you at Volunteer Trail Days to help us make the most popular trails in Chittenden County even better.

Due to the on-going COVID-19 Pandemic, we will be taking additional precautions during these trail days. We will be following state and CDC guidelines, and request that you help us stop the spread of the virus.

Join us for a Trail Day at your favorite trail network this summer!
