Walking and monitoring hiking trails

Spend any length of time outside on a hiking trail and you’re bound to come across examples of well-kept trails, perfectly placed trail blazes, helpful signs or even carefully-crafted stone steps guiding you along. Whether it’s trail building, trail maintenance, and trail repair or even a monthly clean-up, you have volunteer trail maintenance groups to thank for keeping those paths pristine.


Do you enjoy walking trails and love nature? If you do, we would love to have you as one of our Trail Monitors. Being a Trail Monitor means walking our trails and reporting any safety issues, such as overhanging branches or trees blocking the trails.

This position can be performed any time during open hours, all year round.
