This course will take you through live scenarios of trail watch and the how to’s of a trail watcher; it is required for all trail watch volunteers.
County Parks Trail Watch volunteers assist park staff in providing an enhanced public safety presence in County Parks. Working independently, Trail Watch volunteers act as the “eyes and ears” of park staff, providing valuable information for park visitors, and acting as a vital link in emergency medical response situations.
As a Trail Watch volunteer, you have a unique opportunity to provide a vital connection between the public and the park. Through your actions, you can demonstrate correct park use and trail etiquette to educate new park users, and build a fundamental bond with visitors that will last a lifetime. Trail Watch volunteers may choose their preferred method of patrol, including hiking, bicycling, horseback, or by motorcycle (Motorcycle Park only).
