Trail Rangers


Parker’s volunteer Trail Rangers assist the Town’s Trails Maintenance Crew by patrolling and reporting on the Town’s 60+ miles of trails, approximately 34 miles of which are directly maintained by the Town of Parker. Rangers are encouraged to assist fellow trail users, when needed or requested, in areas such as trail etiquette and safety. They can direct more serious incidents to emergency personnel via the 911 system. Volunteers are also equipped with contact information for Town personnel. Rangers routinely report trail and park safety issues, as well as maintenance issues, to the Police and Parks Division.

Become a Volunteer

The ideal Trail Ranger volunteer is already an active trail user. Prospective Rangers should be comfortable distributing trail information to fellow trail users and be enthusiastic about helping the Town improve its extensive trail system. Volunteers patrol the trail on their own time and report trail maintenance issues, safety concerns and public feedback to the Town’s Parks and Recreation and Police staff. For more information on becoming a Trail Ranger, email Supervisor of Parks Administration Ben Shipley or call 303.805.3255.

Report a Trail Safety or Maintenance Concern

To report a safety or maintenance concern on a Parker trail, please fill out an incident report (PDF). When you enter information about an incident or issue, please be as specific as possible about the location of the problem. Nearby trailheads, mile markers or landmarks are useful to Town staff as they work to resolve the issue. If you would like to be contacted to discuss the issue, please include a daytime telephone number or your email address in your report.
