San Mateo County Parks hosts the Take a Hike San Mateo County events the first Saturday of each month in a different parks throughout the county! Each event starts at 9 AM. Volunteers are crucial to our events and our success. Events will require a set-up, assistance during the event, and a break-down when the event ends. Events typically range from 2-3 hours in length.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, willing to represent the Department in a volunteer uniform, and be able to volunteer a minimum of four hours a month. Volunteers must have good communication skills. You may be required to lift up to 30 pounds. Volunteers must be willing to hike along with the group.

Our ideal volunteer candidates are comfortable interacting with a variety of individuals in a culturally diverse environment, reliable, able to remain calm under pressure and able to follow directions in a fast paced and often changing environment.
