Trails

There’s no better way to show love for Scotchman Peaks than volunteering for a trail crew. It’s the work that keeps our wild backyard open for everyone.

You don’t need experience to join one of our trail projects. Just a willingness to learn. Our staff and volunteer trail leads will teach you everything you need to know about trail safety, cross-cut saw techniques, weed identification, trail building methods, and more.

See our Trail Work Schedule below and sign up today!

Are you feeling that swinging a Pulaski, or working the action end of a crosscut saw is out of your comfort zone?  That’s ok…hike up iconic Scotchman Peak trail #65 instead and be a volunteer goat ambassador instead. Sign up for a Saturday or Sunday in the summer today. Dates fill fast for this fun program, be sure to sign up today.

Become a Trail Ambassador!
