The best place to learn about the Trail Patrol is to come to one of our regular monthly meetings.
Trail Patrol's primary mission is to help nature lovers of all kinds enjoy the wilderness safely and with as little impact as possible.
For hikers, we are a visible, reassuring presence on the trails. We walk the trails throughout the year—rain, snow or shine—answering questions and offering help whenever needed.
We prepare for this through training. We learn the essentials such as first aid, land navigation and radio communications, in class rooms and in the field. Periodically we hone our knowledge at weekend outings in the mountains.
We do what we do because we love the outdoors. We like to hike and backpack and we want to share our experience with others. We are volunteers and receive no benefits other than the pleasure of seeing the wonders of nature preserved for our collective pleasure.
