Cape Ann Trail Stewards helps to maintain existing trails, improve access, and support the responsible and safe use of the Cape Ann Trail network and recreational areas. Our work area includes: Rockport, Gloucester, Manchester and Essex.
We began our work as a group of local volunteers in 2012, and became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in April of 2013. We are supported by our members, donors and grant funding. Our primary focus is on helping municipal landowners and conservation organizations protect, maintain and expand Cape Ann's trail network. We match volunteer trail stewards to trails in need of stewardship, and organize trail work parties.
