Seeking Trail Assistants 

By Kelly Mahan Herrick   |   August 16, 2022

The Community Services Department is currently accepting applications to fill two Hot Springs Trail Assistant vacancies in Montecito at the Hot Springs Trail. “This position is important in promoting better relations between trail users and residents near the trail, and a part of the County’s responsibility protecting the public safety of both groups,” said First District Supervisor Das Williams, who sent out the announcement of the positions earlier this week. 

The Trail Assistant will provide information and notify visitors about high fire risk and that open flames are prohibited on the trail; monitor trail and parking lot hours, and parking restrictions; monitor the Hot Springs Trailhead and promote trail and park safety and security; interpret and enforce rules and regulations and ordinances by giving warnings; and may also issue citations. 

Candidates are asked to apply by 5 pm on August 17. Visit for more information and to apply.
