Cedar Valley Trails Patrol is a group of 25 members trained in basic bicycle repairs and first aid. These dedicated volunteers serve as ambassadors and collectively provide an average of 300 hours of service on the trails each year. Trail Patrollers also call in reports on the condition of the trails, including repairs and issues resulting from storms, flooding, etc. If interested in volunteering, email us at trails@cedarvalleytrails@org.
