Volunteer Rangers


Volunteers play an important part in management and improvement of outdoor recreation in the Dublin Mountains.  The DMP has a range of volunteer programs, working with a number of organisations and individuals.



The Adopt-A-Trail programme is one way you can adopt your own trail and help give something back to the land!  This is a cooperative effort between the Dublin Mountains Partnership and public landowners, primarily Coillte, over whose land most of the trails pass.  A small group of two to three people can put in to apply for Adopt-A-Trail.  No previous experience is required, only an interest and ability to maintain trails by cutting back overgrown brush, cleaning drainage structures, and checking and maintaining waymarking and signage.  The aim is to keep your trail in the best possible condition for hiker use and trail longevity.


The DMP would like to invite YOU to be part of this exciting and innovative initiative.
