The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is seeking volunteers to adopt the park's 400-plus miles of trails.
Park Superintendent Niki Stephanie Nicholas said in a news release that the program is a way to get people who love particular trails to help the park service keep those trails in good shape.
The program is being launched first for the trails in the Kentucky side. Trails on the Tennessee side will follow.
