Become a Trail Ranger:

Are you looking for ways to support the Kingston Greenline, Kingston's growing network of trails and cyclist/pedestrian friendly infrastructure? Check out our Trail Rangers page to find learn more and sign up!

As we monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we're asking volunteers to conduct self-guided solo or small group volunteer activities along the Kingston Greenline. Let us know if you'd like to discuss a task or be oriented to a trail section. The KLT can also arrange to provide tools, gloves, garbage bags, and other materials if needed. Please follow social distancing and virus spread prevention guidelines while working on the trail. Share your photos, stories, or feedback from your experience on the trail to help us grow the program and show volunteer appreciation. See you on the trail!
