CSNM Trail Stewards
Becoming a Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Trail Steward is an exciting way to become a supporter of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument/Soda Mountain Wilderness while exploring the monuments trails. From June through mid-September Trail Stewards actively assist monument staff with trail management on the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and trails within the Soda Mountain Wilderness. Trail stewards participate in trail maintenance activities such as clearing the trails for use, using hand tools to improve the tread surface, and completing trail condition assessments. Trail Stewards also help teach visitors the importance of "Leave No Trace," a program encouraging people to reduce their impacts while recreating in the outdoors as well as distributing maps and other monument information.
Trail Condition Assessment
Trail condition assessments help identify needed trail work as well as in prioritizing work for the field season. Condition assessments can be done independently by Trail Stewards any time they feel like going for a hike.
