Adopt-a-Trail is Portland Trails’ premium level of corporate support. The program offers businesses an opportunity to contribute to the trail network by sponsoring a local trail for a donation of $2,500, $5000, or more.

Why adopt a trail?

  • Promote a healthier Portland. Sponsorship funds a pressing need--the care and maintenance of a 70-mile trail network that residents of Greater Portland rely on for healthy recreation and transportation.
  • Promote your business! As one of Portland Trails' major supporters, your business will be recognized in a variety of ways. Your logo will be displayed on a sign along your adopted trail - visible to over one million annual trail users! We also make sure each sponsor is thanked and recognized at major events, on our website, and in our biweekly e-news.
  • Promote health in the work place. Many of our sponsors adopt a trail near their business or offices and find that the ownership employees take of these green spaces contributes to office-wide health. Many companies host walking meetings on the trails, encourage break-time walks, and collaborate on annual trail work days with co-workers on their adopted trails.
