City of Prescott, Recreation Services Department relies on Park Rangers to be stewards of the department’s mission while assisting the general population of park and trail users. Individuals who enjoy hiking, biking, and value a clean park and trails system are excellent candidates. Volunteers are critical to ensure that facilities and natural resources in parks and trails are maintained at the highest level. Rangers assist with providing safe and enjoyable parks through consistent patrols, assisting visitors with directions, parking, park rules and basic first aid. Rangers serve as a liaison between park staff, the police department, and fire department.
The Over the Hill Gang is an all volunteer group dedicated to the construction and maintenance of the Great Prescott Area trails.
