DTE Trail – Adopt a Segment

Did you know that the maintenance needs of the DTE Energy Foundation Trail are higher than EVER before

The DTE Trail has more trail mileage than ever before! AWESOME!!! But, it’s a significant increase in maintenance for an extremely small volunteer base.

We still have trail to build at DTE. But, the Green Lake and Big Kame loops are now well established and have transitioned into maintenance mode.

Our Trail Coordinators are seeking trail section adopters, regular mowing help, and routine maintenance on these loops.

We are actively seeking YOUR help. This means you! And your brother. And your friends. And their friends, too. If you would like to help, please see the developed maps (Green Lake map and Big Kame map) for section adoption and a Sign Up Genius for volunteers. Reserve your section today before it’s gone!! You may also email volunteer@dtetrail.org if you have questions specifically about maintenance needs at DTE.

Never volunteered before? Not sure what a section adopter means? You can click here for a reference guide.

Thanks for volunteering! Don’t forget to log your volunteer hours! Tracking the time you contribute to a trail and reporting it is one of the most important things you can do to help us build and maintain great relationships with land managers.
