Volunteer Opportunities

Developing a trail system in eastern Vilas County requires a multitude of skills and a multitude of people to help. With no paid staff, we depend on our volunteers. Would you like to be one of them?

"Volunteering for GHT gives me the opportunity to work with friendly people who have the same interests as me. I enjoy working on projects and events with other volunteers." ~ Debbie M., Eagle River

"I enjoy helping to plan and develop trails in such a beautiful area. It's a great feeling knowing that I'm part of something worthwhile and long-lasting that is being done for our community." ~ Carlton S., Eagle River, civil engineer and trail designer
