The City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Department is now recruiting for volunteer trail guides who will assist visitors and serve as additional eyes and ears on Boulder’s open space system.

Trail guides make a monthly commitment to hike open space trails and play an important role in promoting responsible and enjoyable outdoor experiences by providing visitors with information on:

  • The city’s 155-mile open space trail system and enjoyable places that visitors can experience.
  • Open Space and Mountain Parks’ diverse wildlife and plant habitats and the lands’ cultural history.
  • Rules and regulations intended to keep open space visitors safe on the trail, promote responsible recreation and protect important natural resources.

Learn more about required trail guide training and complete an application online at: Volunteer trail guides are friendly, courteous and possess excellent communication skills. They must be willing to learn and share knowledge of OSMP trails and the lands’ natural resources with visitors, be comfortable wearing a uniform and assisting visitors in need. Volunteers also need to be committed to fulfilling reporting requirements for what they see on open space and what they hear from visitors. For more information, please contact OSMP at 303-441-3440.
