Erin Amadon’s passion for trail work began over two decades ago when she first served as a member of a youth conservation corps, and she has been doing trail work ever since. During Erin's 12 years as a dedicated partner of Peter S. Jensen and Associates LLC, a professional trail contracting business and member of the Professional Trail Builders Association, she contributed to the completion of many substantial trail projects. Including a 3,200-foot helical anchor boardwalk for The Nature Conservancy, a natural surface accessible trail just under 3 miles for the Crotched Mountain Foundation and worked with a team of professional trail builders to complete 338 stone steps in the Niagara River Gorge.
As a former Training Coordinator for the Maine Conservation Corps, Erin developed and implemented an eleven-week environmental training curriculum for the Trail Training Academy. Erin is committed to youth conservation work and supporting the next generation of trail builders through her work as a Conservation Work Skills Instructor for the Student Conservation Association and in her role on the Maine Conservation Corps Advisory Board.
Erin holds a United States Forest Service Sawyer certification, Wilderness First Responder, CPR, OSHA 10 Hour Construction Safety & Health, Leave No Trace Trainer, and American Canoe Association quick start certifications. In 2017 Erin completed the 270-mile-Long Trail in Vermont which runs up the spine of the Green Mountains.
Whether Erin is immersed in a technical stonework project, is building a machine-built trail that meets Federal Trail Standards for accessibility, or in the backcountry, she is committed to building high-quality, trails. Erin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to volunteer groups, clients, students, and fellow trail lovers and continues to do this through her business Town 4 Trail Services, LLC.
