The LOViT Traildogs

Hard-working Traildogs!

Hard-working Traildogs!

The "Traildogs" organization was established in the fall of 2005 as a group of volunteers dedicated to the construction and maintenance of the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOViT). The organization consists of approximately thirty volunteers who provide support to the US Forest Service and Corps of Engineers in the design, planning, and construction of the Vista trail.

There are no meetings to attend and no dues. The Traildogs are notified through email of the planned workdays and join the construction teams as their schedules permit.

Activities include:

  1. initial layout and flagging of each new segment of the trail
  2. assistance in the actual construction of the trail
  3. installing benches and signs along the trail
  4. marking the trail with signs and blazing
  5. ongoing trail maintenance as needed
