What is the Durham Community Trail Watch Group?

The Durham Community Trail Watch (DCTW) group is a network of volunteers that monitor the hike and bike trails in Durham at their leisure. The group was originally formed to ensure that the American Tobacco Trail be a safe and enjoyable place for all trail users to experience the outdoors, whether they’re using the trail for recreational or commuting purposes. The group has since expanded its patrol territory to include all hike and bike trails in Durham County. DCTW continues to promote safe, clean and enjoyable trails through their trail clean-up days with the Durham Parks and Recreation’s Adopt-a-Trail program, the group’s informational Education Stations, and hosting their monthly Full Moon Fever Bike Rides.
