Pictures - "Swamp Crew"

 

These smiling faces belong to a volunteer work crew that completed major and expensive repairs in 2012 to an older elevated footbridge-boardwalk in a potentially wet segment of the Grand Valley Trail.

Some hiking organizations, like the Grand Valley Trail and the Avon Trail, have a mandate of acquiring a trail and maintaining it. Most hiking groups do not own the land, so permission is sought from land owners and, once granted, the volunteers build and then maintain the trail. In some places the trail is a footpath while in others it may coincide with a wider trail that is maintained by a municipality or conservation authority.
