I feel so official riding the trails of Mill Mountain in my patroller garb. Looking for trouble. Keeping the people safe. That's how us patrollers roll.
Seriously, IMBA nailed it with this program. We all want to see the places we ride remain accessible to all trail users, and the patrol is the perfect way to reach all user groups.
I hope those of us on the patrol never need to use any of our CPR or First Aid skills and just get the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the users enjoying the trails on the mountain. But, it's nice to know that there are around 20 separate patrollers that are up there riding regularly who are trained to help when if we're ever needed.
