About the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship

Formed in 2003, the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship is a volunteer driven non-profit whose primary goal is the maintenance and enhancement of the trail systems in and around Downieville, the Lakes Basin, Graeagle and Quincy. This small group has donated over 60,000 hours of volunteer labor to both the Plumas and Tahoe National Forests, maintaining over 50 trails, including the creation of 50 miles of new trails.

While these trails see over 200,000 users per year, they continue to maintain a level A standing due to all the hard work of the Stewardship volunteers. This organization is not only a shining example of what a small group of dedicated, passionate people can do for an area, it is a demonstration of economic efficiency when no alternatives exist.

All our product sponsors’ and volunteer monies go directly to trail maintenance and development. We multiply all donations by over 1500% through organized volunteer labor in-kind contributions.
