Read all about it in The Southampton Press
FACT: There are 300 miles of trails within Southampton Town.  
It's a daunting task to keep them all clear and open for you, and STPS does its very best!  

Every Thursday morning volunteers work on one of the trails, camaraderie and jokes are abundant.  Usually delicious home baked
cookies reward those who show up.  You are most welcome to help maintain this wonderful trail system.
