Durham Community Trail Watch (DCTW)

The Durham Community Trail Watch (DCTW) group is a network of volunteers that patrol the Hike & Bike trails in Durham, North Carolina at their leisure. The group was originally formed to help make the American Tobacco Trail a safer and more enjoyable place to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. The group has since expanded its patrol territory to include all Hike & Bike trails in Durham County.  DCTW continues to promote safe, clean and enjoyable trails through Durham Parks and Recreation’s  Adopt-a-Trail program, its own Education Stations and monthly Full Moon Fever Bike Rides.  

Please visit the DCTW Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/DurhamCommunityTrailWatch, to find out more about the group’s  activities.
