Trail Maintenance

Through our Park Patrol network, Oakland Trails volunteers scout trail conditions, monitor SeeClickFix reports, and coordinate volunteer work days to help keep our trails open and safe for all users.

To help us procure needed tools and materials, please DONATE to our stewardship program.
