    Amen and some folks probably abuse the system .. wrecking it for others.. me.. I don't care about a few bucks to worry about hours.. I'm in agreement with if you volunteer for free your held higher among peers then if you look for a reward like a few dollar pass.

    My quote stems from the fact that trail maintenance in April is rare, especially on northern trails. If I did maintenance on Ammo Ravine in April, it was not often and on snow. Blowdown removal only. That's my perspective of course, but my thought was to not plan to get in a maintenance trip before an April deadline.

    I had a lower mountain trail when I did maintenance. I thought I had April trips in there given that, but lo and behold, May 3rd was the earliest.

    October and May still counts.

    If you need a reward for volunteering, maybe you're doing it wrong ? What trail are you maintaining with 10+ adopters ?

    Thanks to all who volunteer !
