Waukesha County


The Waukesha County Parks Adopt-A-Trail program is an opportunity for groups of all sizes and types to become actively involved in maintaining and protecting the beauty of the County's recreational trail systems.

Currently, Waukesha County manages and maintains just over 35 miles of paved recreational trails with unique and scenic experiences for all! Volunteers will assist with keeping these trails clean and safe.

How does it work?

The Adopt-A-Trail program requires a one-year commitment with the option of renewing at the end of each year. Groups commit to four clean-ups a year, in spring, summer, and fall. 

Group leaders will coordinate their dates with park staff, log trail reports, and ensure waivers are signed for all group members. All participants must be 8 years old to participate.

There is no charge to adopters. Park staff will provide trash bags, safety vests, trail safety signs, litter grabbers and other necessary tools. 

Your group name will be highlighted on two trail signs by your segment to recognize your contributions to the program.
