Frequently Asked Questions

Interested in volunteering? The East Bay Trail Dogs are actively seeking new members.

Young and old, men and women, Trail Dogs come from all walks of life. Some of our members are retired. Some are teenagers who are active in community service.

If you enjoy walking, hiking, biking, or horseback riding in the outdoors, no doubt you may have noticed some trails that have been eroded by water runoff and are in need of repair. Or perhaps you have noticed convenient steps or benches out on a remote hiking trail and you have wondered who built them. Parks employees often take care of these tasks, but with the great number of trails in the Bay Area, it is often useful for the parks to be able to call on volunteers to help keep up with these services that benefit all those who enjoy the outdoors. That is where the Trail Dogs come in.

We usually work from 9 a.m. until 2 or 3 p.m., on most Tuesdays. Some volunteers come to every event, and some come every once in a while when they can make it. Any time you would like to join us on a project, you will be welcomed. You can visit this website to find out about our upcoming projects.

It is a good idea to wear jeans or long pants to protect your legs. Bring some water and a lunch, as working locations are often remote.

We usually meet at an easily accessible location, and then travel as a group to the working area. We leave the meeting spot at 9 a.m. It is a good idea to arrive on time; otherwise it may be difficult to locate the group!

We would enjoy having you join us for any of our upcoming projects. For more details, check our calendar or contact us.
