Thank you to those who have supported the Trail Adoption Plan Program!
Thank you to those who have supported the Trail Adoption Plan over its past 7 years! With 29 adopters working on 28 trails in 2017, our efforts to restore the Shore continue in full force. We collectively held over 100 TAP trail days and approximately 5,000 hours of labor last year. Since its inception in 2011, the program has contributed over 15,000 hours of labor to the trails while remaining focused on sustainable solutions.
Our 2017 Trail Adoption Plan members were:
Thanks to each and every company for their hard work on the trails and their contribution to our community!
The NSMBA is pleased to announce our TAP adopters for 2016.
The efforts of each adopter are led by a trained, professional NSMBA Lead Builder. Each adopter will hold up to 6 trail days this calendar year to implement improvements that have been approved by the appropriate Land Manager. The TAP Program contributes as much as 5000 hours in volunteer labour annually since inception in 2011.
The goal is to improve the trails and seek sustainable solutions through preventative maintenance and other projects. Consideration for the environment and minimizing our impact are integral in our approach.
For those who are about to dig, we salute you!
Please support those who support the trails.

The year it all began
TAP 2011 – First Year!
Many of the trails on the North Shore were built over a decade ago. Our wet winters and high number of trail users have taken their toll. We are embarking on a revitalization plan to improve the current state of the trails. New, sustainable lines will replace unsustainable sections, decaying structures will be replaced or removed, and erosion undone.
Many positive projects are in the imminent future to return the Shore to its legendary status. Starting with the Trail Adoption Plan.
As Stewards of the Trails, it’s up to all of us.
We invite you to join us by playing a key role in this era of renewal. The Trail Adoption Plan partners your organization with an NSMBA Trail Maintainer to revitalize an adopted trail.
