Trail Ambassador Program
Every summer, Scotchman Peak Trail Ambassadors hit the trails to make sure hikers know they need to keep their distance from wildlife. It’s a great reason to get out for a hike while performing an important conservation service.
What you do:
- Pick a day to be out on the Scotchman Peak trail.
- Gently educate fellow hikers on trail etiquette and safe goat interactions.
- Fill out our Trail Ambassador report form at the end of the day.
What we do:
- Provide you with a brief training
- Gift you a shirt and a hat!
The Trail Ambassador program runs all summer long on weekends and national holidays. Bring a friend, or your whole family for a fun and impactful day in the wild Scotchmans.
A note on Goats…
Scotchman Peak mountain goats are iconic. Although they may seem cuddly, they are wild animals and best admired from a distance if you want to keep Scotchman Peaks open for everyone.
Goats are curious, and when they become too familiar with humans, it can be dangerous for both humans and goats.
When goats get too close with humans, they can become aggressive, leading to the potential for hiker injuries and trail closures.
Don’t let that happen in our wild backyard.
