The Adopter of each maintenance section is a responsible individual, often representing a family group, Scout Troop, hiking club, mountain bike group, horse club, or simply a group of friends. Adopters stick with the task for many years, finding outdoor fun and a sense of accomplishment. Each summer, Adopters and their volunteer helpers:
- Clear fallen trees to make way for Trail users early in the trail season, soon after snow melts on your section
- Assess the signage: intersection signs and trail markers both northbound and southbound
- Clean water diversions sometime during the trail season to prevent erosion
- Report to the CTF as needed & requested
Adopters are responsible for the 84 AAT Sections that span the length of the CT. They vary in length from 1 ½ to 17 miles. Supported by the CTF, Adopters receive leadership, handbooks, and access to CTF tools and can involve themselves in orientation and training activities.
