The Seniors and Lawmen Together team (S.A.L.T.) is a group of volunteers who patrol the trails of the Iowa Great Lakes region during the summer months. From May through October the volunteers ride a donated Polaris ATV from the north end of the trail around Big Spirit Lake to the south end at Milford and along the west side of West Lake Okoboji. A typical summer will see the S.A.L.T. team log over 6,000 miles while maintaining the safety of the bikers, walkers and rollerbladers who utilize the trail system. Each volunteer is trained and certified to operate the ATV and also carries a cell phone and radio to report emergencies and problems to the Communications Center. Aside from emergencies, the trail patrol also provides information, water and carries air pumps for bicycles.
