Much of the work at Pinnacle Peak Park is done by the hands of volunteers - trailside or inside - the opportunities for individuals with time and talent to share are numerous.

Join our team!

Pinnacle Peak Park is always seeking fellow hikers, trail runners, rock climbers, or nature enthusiast, that love Pinnacle Peak Park and want to give back joining our dynamic team of volunteers.

Opportunities

Trail Rovers
Hike the trail and enhance the visitor experience by engaging with hikers, answering questions, and sharing information about the Peak. Trail Rovers also offer education on park rules and regulations and help with emergency situations as they arise on the trail.
Trail Sweepers
Prior to closing, hike the trail and “sweep” visitors toward the parking lot to help ensure everyone is safely off the peak and out of the park at closing.
Trail Maintenance
This team repairs and maintains the trail, keeping it safe and enjoyable for visitors. This is physical work using a variety of hand tools. No experience necessary.
Visitor Center Attendant
Actively engage with park visitors, offering helpful advice, suggestions, answering questions, and facilitating the Junior Ranger Program.
Interpretive Leaders
Lead interpretive hikes along the trail, or talks in the ramada, discussing a variety of topics including plants, animals, geology, and history.
