Support the work of our volunteers!
Incorporated in 2010, our mission is to promote the continued enjoyment of Idaho’s hiking trails. We work to accomplish our mission through volunteer trail work, education about Idaho’s unique trail resources, and professional advocacy.
This year our goal is to maintain more than 105 miles of hiking trails with the help of 95 volunteers. On National Trails Day alone, 16 volunteers helped maintain a hiking trail in the Bruneau-Jarbidge Wilderness . In mid July, volunteers maintained 17 miles of the Pistol Creek Trail near Cascade, clearing fallen trees and brush. With six more volunteer trail projects scheduled this year, we’re on our way to reaching our goal.
These projects would not be possible without the work of dedicated volunteers and the financial support of our members. We want to recruit as many new members as we have volunteers – 95. ITA offers affordable membership rates, starting at $15 for students of public or private institutions.
Your contribution will help keep Idaho’s hiking trails safe, sustainable, and enjoyable. If you are already a volunteer or member, we thank you and hope that you will invite a friend to join with us. Summer is a great time to renew your membership or become a new member!
I am 64 years old. You should offer free memberships to seniors of age 65 or greater.
We thought long and hard about offering free student and senior memberships. Membership dues enable us to do the work that we do. However, if you can’t donate at this time, you can still come volunteer for one of our projects without being a member. It’s another great way to help out. In fact, first time volunteers are entitled to a one-time, free membership. You can also stay in touch with us by subscribing to our online newsletters here.
