AWTA’s mission is the stewardship of a sustainable trail system in the greater Ashland area.

In addition to sharing leadership in the development of the master trail and open space plan, the AWTA raises funds through events, grants and private donations to fund NEPA studies, trail construction and maintenance.

AWTA has purchased TRAFX Trail Counters (www.trafx.net) to gather data on pedestrian and bike traffic on our trails in and around Ashland. We hope that use information will help guide resource allocation and trail planning by the City of Ashland and the USFS.
