For over 70 years Winding Trails has been a vital part of the Farmington and its surrounding communities. Like other nonprofit organizations, we depend on the generosity of other to help us to make our community a better place to live and raise our children. Your tax-deductible donation will help to ensure Winding Trails continues to maintain its beautiful facilities and offer quality programs.  

We ask you to help make a difference by contributing today.  You choose where you would like your donation to go:


The current playground at Dunning Lake is over 30 years old and showing its age. With your help, we’ll construct a new state of the art playground for all ages to enjoy. The estimated cost of this project is $280K. To make this possible, we need to your help to raise $100K.


A gift allocated here supports a full range of projects that serve the mission of Winding Trails. Your 2020 donations will be used to: help fund the proposed new playground at Dunning Lake, upgrade the public address system, add changing areas and a gaga pit at camp, add new paddleboards and kid kayaks at the beach, and various other items for our facility.


Winding Trails continues its commitment to the 10-year Master Plan for Dunning Lake beach. Last year, we renovated the women’s side of the Bathhouse and installed a giant checkerboard game. The next large project is the replacement of our aging playground. With your help, we will have a new playground ready for the Summer of 2022 with unique fun features.


Winding Trails’ Summer Day Camp is a great opportunity for children to make new friends, learn new skills, and explore the outdoors. Unfortunately, not every family has the means to afford camp. These funds make it possible for underprivileged children to have a summer camp experience that would not otherwise have been available to them. Last year we provided 91 children with a camp experience they’ll never forget, at no cost.


Gifts here provide free annual wildlife programing attended by hundreds of families and other environmental initiatives.

Please consider making a contribution to Winding Trails. One hundred percent (100%) of your tax-deductible donation will go to making sure Winding Trails remains a natural gem for future generations to cherish.
