Adopt-A-Trail Program

EMBA started the Adopt-A-Trail program in 2010, in affiliation with the City of Edmonton.

We work with our participating members to care for Edmonton’s singletrack trails.  EMBA along with each participating member, organize and host Trail Days throughout the season while providing guidance, expertise, and resources to complete the trail work.
