This spring, volunteers who possess knowledge of Gorge, Mount Hood and North Coast trails are needed to serve as trail ambassadors.

Volunteer trail ambassadors hike trails on weekends during peak season; engage with the public to answer hiking and recreation-related questions; promote responsible hiker ethics; and direct people to useful resources.

Taking an online training is required before signing up to volunteer; those who complete 24 hours of volunteer service earn a Northwest Forest Pass.
