The Recreational Trails Advisory Committee is proud to offer this non-profit web-based trail incident reporting system as part of the Park Watch program.

It now covers all trails in the adjoining counties and trail Incident Reports are forwarded to the proper Park/District Supervisor or law enforcement, as well as serving as a permanent record and data collection.
ALL TRAIL USERS, INCLUDING 4,500 RUNNERS, HIKERS, DOG WALKERS, MT. BIKERS AND EQUESTRIANS have Park Watch Cards and are part of the Park Watch Program. To see two examples of current Park Watch Cards CLICK HERE and CLICK HERE
