Spring Clean-up Time is Here

Nickel Plate Trail, Inc. is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization. Because of this, supporting and maintaining the Nickel Plate is a community effort.

Without the help of volunteers, we would not be able to maintain this wonderful community resource. This work brings along with it a great sense of accomplishment, knowing you have contributed to keeping these trails open for all to enjoy!

Each Spring we find it necessary to clean up along the trail. Some parts of the trail have been adopted, but many have not. If you would like to volunteer to clean up trash from a section of the trail this spring, simply choose one of the sections below. We would love to have all of the trail cleaned up within the first couple of weeks of April.
