Trailhead Ambassador

Join Friends this spring and summer along with the Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge Regional Tourism Alliance, Oregon State Parks, and the U.S. Forest Service to educate hikers at popular trailheads throughout the Gorge and Mt. Hood. We're looking for out-going volunteers to answer hiker and Eagle Creek fire related questions, promote responsible hiker ethics like Leave No Trace, and highlight Ready, Set, Gorge tips.
