We need you and your support now!

All the work you see at the trails is done by a small group of FOTST volunteers who depend on your support to maintain and groom the trails, put up signage, and make the trails as wonderful as they are!  For example, it takes two volunteers at least four hours (sometimes up to six hours) to do one grooming and tracking run.

FOTST also has members of the organization who show us that they appreciate the work we do and are responsible for sharing the cost of keeping the trails open for everyone in the community.
