Oakland Trails is an all-volunteer organization. Our mission, via our Park Patrol volunteer program, is to welcome and assist park users, and help improve the quality and safety of Oakland’s wildland parks and trails. We also love to promote the parks through occasional hiking tours and via our original documentaries.

Please watch and share Old Survivor (2018) and Trailhead (2015), our 20-minute documentaries featuring Oakland parks and redwoods.

Please note: Many of our regular activities (trail work days, hiking tours, etc.) are suspended due to ongoing pandemic restrictions.

See you on the trails,

Stan Dodson
