The Palomar Ranger District on the Cleveland National Forest is seeking volunteers for trail safety patrol for the San Diego River Gorge Trail.
San Diego River Gorge Trail provides access to Cedar Creek Falls which is a popular local destination. This opportunity is ideal for volunteers who enjoy the great outdoors, hiking, and working with the public. Volunteers must have the ability to hike a minimum of six miles one to three times a week. The ability to work independently, good communication skills, ability to relate to children and adults of diverse backgrounds, a positive attitude, and good listening skills are needed.
Physical demands - lots of walking and prolonged standing. Summer daytime temperatures can often top 100 degrees in the Cedar Creek Falls Area. This should be taken into consideration for individuals with health issues affecting heat tolerance.
Your duties will include:
Educating forest visitors on the geography of the area, safety concerns while hiking the trail, as well as rules and regulations, including the requirements for a permit to visit Cedar Creek Falls.
Assisting Forest Service personnel by keeping forest visitors off the cliff closure areas.
Assisting hikers who are suffering from the effects of the trail.
