With over 80,000 acres of parkland scattered throughout three counties the Golden Gate Trail Crew plays a vital role for the park visitor experience. Volunteers help to maintain a world-class trail system, which connects many of the parks found within the Golden Gate National Parks.
Volunteer activities vary from season to season, but include tasks such as retreading trail, restoring native habitat, moving materials, replacing fence, brushing trail and constructing trail structures. This program is great for those who are not afraid to get dirty, receive a great workout, and enjoy meeting new folks!
Participants have the opportunity to visit and experience some of the most beautiful sites found within the Golden Gate National Parks. Whether it’s brushing on Hawk Hill or helping to control erosion at Lands End, volunteering with the Golden Gate Trail Crew is sure to provide a unique and fun experience.
Please join us for this month’s trail work day and meet others like you, who love the park trails and want to contribute to these wonderful resource! Locations vary each month.
