We have six opportunities at this level. The donation level for this range from $150,000 to $250,000 each and includes the following:  your gift will be recognized along the trail section on plaques at the beginning and the end of each section listing your family name, business name, or another name of your choosing.

Your section of trail will be color coded and any other appropriate signs posted along the section of trail to include parking areas, trailheads and resting locations will reflect your name.
