Mark Hilling

I have always loved hiking and have greatly appreciated the time people put into creating incredible places for me to walk.  I feel that it is important that I be a giver sometimes and not just a taker of the efforts of others that do the trail work.
-Mark Hilling

Mark has been volunteering with CTC since 2016. He enjoys building trail and really likes the fact that he can come out and volunteer with our Trail Crew any day he wishes.

Mark enjoys his time in the outdoors and says it’s good for his soul and body. The friendships forged through volunteering with the crew and volunteers gives him a good sense of belonging. He encourages others to give trail building a try and says it’s only as hard as you make it. He also notes that the experience is very rewarding and people you meet are exceptional.
