The Adopt-A-Trail program utilizes volunteers to assist the Parks Department in keeping Arvada's trail system beautiful.  

How Does Adopt a Trail Work?

  • 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.

  • The Parks Department provides trash bags and posts signs along the adopted trail, giving recognition to individuals or group volunteers.
