Hike and work the trails in San Jose’s iconic Alum Rock Park!

Volunteers will meet in the Youth Science Institute parking lot, at the farthest end of the park. Follow the yellow “Volunteer Event” signs and register at the lime green volunteer truck and trailer.

Trail crew starts PROMPTLY at 9:00 AM! Give yourself sufficient time to reach the destination.There may be a short line at the entrance kiosk and it is a winding 2 mile road from the main gate to the end of the park. Obey all speed limits and watch out for wildlife!
