The Role Of Volunteers
The Trail Watch program is designed to encourage participation from all Anchorage trail users to be an extra set of eyes and ears on the trail and report safety issues. Trail Watch volunteers only report safety and maintenance issues to the appropriate authorities. Trail Watch volunteers do not act in any enforcement capacity or intervene. Volunteer safety is priority number one.
