The Trails committee puts together a schedule of maintenance trips each year. We do regular, monthly trips on the Ridgeline Trails and Spencer Butte with the City of Eugene Parks & Open Space Division. Read more about it here. And we do litter pick up hikes along the Ridgeline Trails system. We also do trail maintenance trips in the National Forests and Wilderness areas.

If you have a favorite trail that you think needs a bit of work, call or email Matthew Bell (503-884-8829, trails@obsidians.org) and we’ll put you to work on it.
