Keeping trails clear of snow and ice

(ABC 6 News) – Have you ever wondered who goes out and braves the elements to help clear walking and hiking trails? We have the answer.

A group of volunteers including 35 families band together and conquer the snow dominating those trails.

They cover around 40 miles of trails and maintain them in hot and cold temperatures. Trail administrator with the Byron Snow Bears says the goal is safety.

“The reason we put the trails in is to keep people on the trails it’s safe there are no obstacles that kind of thing. You get off the trail your taking chances and all kinds of dangerous things plus you might be trespassing as well so we put in the trails so that everybody has a good time,” Trail administrator, James Miesbauer said.

The group is always looking for new members. They meet on the second Thursday of every month.
