Volunteer Trail Work Days

Help build the flow trail at Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF). Volunteer involvement is crucial to completing this project!

Work days are scheduled twice a month (see schedule below), and everyone is welcome — no trail work experience required! Our supportive, experienced crew leaders and trail builders will teach you techniques and make a confident trail builder out of you in no time flat. Plus, volunteer trail workers get to test ride and dial in new sections of the flow trail—how cool is that?

Keep in mind that trail work days are weather dependent. Windy and wet weather may produce hazardous conditions, or limit trail work day productivity.

We also hold informal work days during the week Tuesday through Friday, weather permitting. Contact us for further details if you can join us.

If you want to help out, but aren’t keen on digging, there are still lots of ways you can help out without breaking a sweat. Check out our Help Wanted page for ways you can get involved.

Can you Sponsor a Volunteer Trail Work Day?
We depend on volunteers to build the trail, and we depend on sponsors to keep our volunteers fed, hydrated, and happy during our work days. If your company is interested in helping MBoSC put on an A+ work day, contact us for sponsorship information. This is a great way to promote your business while supporting a community driven project.
