CITY OF PAGE ADOPT-A-TRAIL PROGRAM
Created by Ainsley and Violet from Girl Scout Troop 7489
Welcome to the City of Page Adopt-A-Trail program! This portal will give you information and the tools you will need to participate and maintain the Rim Trail’s natural beauty. What is Adopt-A-Trail? Adopt-A-Trail is a program that provides a way for the community to be involved in keeping our trails clean and safe.
Why and how the program came to be:
We identified a need within the City of Page for trail maintenance. The Rim Trail is 10.2 miles long and encircles the city of Page. The trail is utilized for various activities from dog walking to marathons and is too big to constantly be overseen by the Parks & Trails department alone. We chose to begin this effort since we had seen it to be sustainable and work in other areas. The Adopt-A-Trail program is both giving back to the community and is sustainable. Through Girl Scouts we have learned the importance of our city and it shows our pride in the City of Page.
Why should you sign up?
Signing up for the Adopt-A-Trail program will allow you to be involved in your community. By signing up for the Adopt-A-Trail program you will be able to have a sign in your name on the trail recognizing you for your efforts to help the trail. On the sign you will also be able to advertise your business, club, organization or in memoriam.
