The Richards-Raven Equestrian trail was opened to the public in May 2021. It includes 19 miles of trails across diverse topography and includes a 3-acre trailhead, 3 bridges, and other structures that require regular maintenance and repairs. For monitoring purposes the RRT has been divided into 8 segments which volunteer Trail Stewards survey throughout the year.
TRAIL STEWARD DUTIES:
Survey assigned trail section at least twice per year and as requested to address a specific need
Start a RAMBLR map and look for (click here for more guidance on conducting a trail survey):
Signage and reassurance markers (line of sight, visible (not covered by foliage), damage)
Culverts and bridges (clear of debris, damage)
Encroachment of foliage into trail corridor (face slappers)
Erosion, ladder roots or other safety issues
Complete the RRT Trail Survey Form (BELOW)
Log volunteer hours
Items needing attention as determined by the steward surveys are logged on the RRT Maintenance Tracker for follow up.
WANT TO HELP?:
Regular volunteer workdays will be coordinated on the 4th Saturday of each month to tackle items needing attention. If you would like to become a volunteer and help at these workdays, complete the New Volunteer Form and indicate "Equestrian" for your element. Also you will need a Volunteer Service Agreement (VSA) for the current year. That's it! Together we can help make the RRT sparkle and ensure enjoyment by all who use it.
