The Hills to Sea Trail Coalition is seeking a volunteer to assist with maintaining its website and volunteers to steward sections of the 47-mile Hills to Sea Trail.

The volunteer steward positions involve walking a section of trail four times a year between April and October, clearing light debris and identifying areas that need more attention. A person to freshen paint blazes is also needed.

The trail extends from Belfast to Unity, and sections range in length from a half-mile to more than 4 miles. A handsaw and/or loppers are the only tools needed, and stewards receive a one-hour orientation. Large limbs and downed trees are taken care of by trail crew members with chainsaws.

The Hills to Sea Trail depends on its many volunteers to remain a valued community resource.

To learn more about any of these positions, contact Buck O’Herin at For more information about the Hills to Sea Trail, visit the website at
