MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama is set to launch an annual membership program to encourage trail lovers to support hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails within state parks.

The Alabama Department of Conservation & Natural Resources said in a statement Thursday that the Dirt Pass Trails Team program will begin in June.

Officials say all of the money from the program will go toward both building new trails and maintaining existing ones across the state parks system.

Program members will receive a custom wristband, a trails program brochure and an undisclosed gift.

Each pass will be sold for $25 for the remainder of 2016 at 10 different state parks: Cheaha, Chewacla, DeSoto, Frank Jackson, Gulf, Lake Guntersville, Lake Lurleen, Monte Sano, Oak Mountain, and Wind Creek.

The pass will sell for $35 in 2017.
