Lend a helping hand at maintaining the trails at Santiago Oaks Regional Park.
Partner with an OC Parks Volunteer as they guide you through the proper tool use to repair highly used and heavily washed out trails. Tools and safety talk are provided by Volunteers and/or Staff. Bring gloves and water if you have them. Sun protection is important and be ready to work up a sweat as we mend our trails for all to enjoy!
This is a highly strenuous and highly rewarding activity. Be prepared to hike over several miles, up steep terrain carrying tools and gear.

Back Country Patrol (BCP) Volunteers share their trail knowledge with park visitors while working the monthly Safe Trail Awareness Day informative booth at Irvine, Santiago Oaks, and Peters Canyon Regional Parks. BCP Volunteers share how trail users can maximize their enjoyment while in the parks. The Trail Etiquette Triangle is highlighted at the booth and is a friendly reminder when each hiker, biker and equestrian have the right-away while passing each other on the trails. BCP Volunteers answer questions, encourage proper trail etiquette, and hand out bike bells and other trail goodies.
Booth is open 8 – 11 a.m., weather permitted. Meet at the Ranger Station by 7:30 a.m.
Booth is available for Facility Certified Back Country Patrol Volunteers for Irvine, Santiago Oaks, and Peters Canyon Regional Parks.

Half the park is after dark! Come explore the nocturnal sights and sounds as we hit the trails on this leisure night hike. It’s chilly after sunset so wear warm layers, sturdy footwear, water, and bring red tinted flashlight if possible. This will help to keep our night vision from being impacted by any bright light.
This hike is not recommended for very small children or strollers. No pets please. Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian during the program.
