If you love getting out and about and being active in the Somerset countryside then this is the role for you! As a Rights of Way volunteer, you will ‘adopt’ a path or paths to walk. You will regularly (3 or 4 times per year) carry out light cutting back of vegetation from around signposts, gates and styles as well as reporting any problems encountered on local rights of way to the Rights of Way team. This role can fit around you and your schedule and could even be combined with walking the dog! The trail watcher scheme is very similar to the adopt a path scheme but on one of our five promoted routes and includes assisting in an annual survey of the chosen trail. Our fantastic Rights of Way Volunteers make it possible for people to continue to enjoy the Somerset countryside and access rights of way.
