Our story

We are a large group of volunteers who came together to create this non-porfit to maintain and build a better Trail Network. Our main goal is to protect the Hawes Environment open to the public. We want to stop the illegal trails from being built. We want to work with local Forest Service Officials and City planers to design a future plan that lasts!
