Trail safety team
The Trail Safety Team removes trail hazards and patrols our urban trails so that users can safely enjoy them
TRAIL SAFETY PATROL TEAM
Trail Safety Team members patrol in pairs throughout San Jose's urban trail system on electric bicycles, providing a visible security presence. Patrollers use an online reporting matrix provided by the City of San Jose to report illegal or suspicious activities to the responsible authorities. The Trail Safety Team makes our urban trails safe and accessible to the public.
SOME THINGS WE DO
Being a presence on the trail and reporting illegal or inappropriate activities to the proper authorities
Fixing trail hazards (broken glass on trail, vegetation encroachment, holes in fences, etc.)
Assisting with information requests from public (for navigation/directions, distance, etc.)
TRAIL SAFETY STRIKE TEAM
The Trail Safety Strike Team employs a San Jose Conservation Corps (SJCC) team of 4-6 corpsmembers on an as needed basis to repair selected trails for public agencies.
The Strike Team fixes substantial trail safety hazards and provide repair activities within 48-hours of being reported.
