Become a Member Now — Online
Your membership contribution is good for one year. We encourage you to renew annually — and we make it easy to do that with our automated system.
Membership dollars get directed toward a wide range of initiatives to keep the Trail a valuable resource. MTC receives no operating funds from the state or federal government — it is a private, non-profit organization that owns the trail property and/or rights of way.
Perhaps the most important role of membership is the opportunity to vote each year for MTC Board representation. These essential volunteers are the stewards of the Trail, its history and natural resources, for now and for future generations.
In becoming a member, you get to choose the level of financial support that is appropriate to your circumstances and budget. The recommended yearly contribution for each level is a guideline. You may contribute at a higher level if you wish.

Reasons to Become a Member…
Members tell us that the primary membership benefit is the warm feeling of giving back to a much-loved local resource. Membership donations are a major source of revenue and help us cover annual trail maintenance and operating expenses.
Your membership, along with those of all other members, helps us substantiate the broad public support the Montour Trail enjoys. The more members we have, the louder our voice speaks when we go to any individual or group for support.
When we apply for capital project funding to support new trail development, one of the first things that foundations and government agencies look at is the size of the membership body. Your membership donations do more than just maintain the Trail network — they also allow us to expand and develop new trail pathways.
