Annual Trail Work

The Western States Trail Foundation works with Local, State and Federal agencies as well as the Western States Run and volunteers to maintain the trail. Volunteers play an intricate roll in keeping the trail open and in good condition. Please consider making an annual pledge of time or finances to show your support for the trail.
