Take Back Our Trails

Trail Cleanup

Your Pledge Protects What’s Wild

You love the outdoors, and so do we. Together, let’s clean up our favorite spots, making sure they’re litter-free and healthy for generations to come.

The miles you pledge toward river and trail systems will combine with our 1,000-mile annual commitment that’s part of our Take Back Our Trails program.

Share photos of your cleanup, too, for the chance to win a custom Trail Kit—gear and other essentials for winter adventure. Post your picture(s) to Instagram, tag us @sierranevada, and use #TakeBackOurTrails. We’ll randomly select 3 winners each month.

Big thanks to sierranevada for supporting #california trails in a big way! #palealefortrails #sierranevada ...

Took myrunangel for her first spin on the trails this morning ☀️🧡🌾
Pretty kiff being able to run with an increased sense of security on solo missions. Obviously still tell your people where you’re going and keep your head in the game, always!
Thank you werunza for this great initiative!!
