In 1999 Island Rec’s Board of Commissioners created the Trails Committee as a subcommittee of the Island Rec Board.
Today it is an active, organized and dedicated group of volunteers committed to encouraging the creation and maintenance of a network of trails for non-motorized use on San Juan Island.
Trail Committee Volunteers will be leading guided trail walks on the 4th Saturday of every month. These “Know Your Island” Walks are a great way to get out and enjoy the island while learning about the area and natural history. Visit the Trails Committee website.
