Rest Stop Job Descriptions
Payments from Discover Klamath on behalf of Ride the Rim are set at $500 per rest stop
REST STOPS – Cleetwood Cove, White Bark Pine, Dutton Ridge:
Volunteer groups will be responsible for providing 4-5 people at your designated rest stop(s) located
along the route (see map). Volunteer groups will be responsible for gathering rest stop materials from
the Discover Klamath office in Klamath Falls Friday (day before the event), set-up, working the stop
during the event inclusive of stocking and providing food to participants, clean up, tear-down, and
delivering rest stop materials back to Discover Klamath the following day. Some food prep is required
such as cutting fruit. Gloves will be provided and required while cutting the fruit. Plenty of adult
supervision is require if volunteer groups consist of youth. This job does require some heavy lifting (up
to 40 lbs.). Work gloves are suggested, but not provided. Groups will also be responsible for counting
participants that stop at the rest stop using a hand-held counter.
Ride the Rim will provide the food and equipment needed for the rest stops, except for chairs –
volunteers will need to bring their own chair to sit in. You will also have at least one Friends of Crater
Lake Member at each rest stop who are very knowledgeable about Crater Lake and will work directly
with each volunteer group and participants to help answer any questions about the event or the park.
Volunteer groups are allowed to bring giveaways such as stickers, Chapstick, brochures, etc. These items
can have your organization’s logo on them; however, groups are not allowed to advertise with banners,
signs, etc. per national park regulations.
Volunteers working these rest stops MUST be completely set up by 7:30 am. Please plan to arrive
accordingly. Plan for roughly 45 minutes to an hour to set up your rest stop. Riders begin riding at 8:00
am, however, some participants begin early. The event will run from 8am – 6pm. You cannot begin to
tear down until 6:00 pm, and you may not leave your rest stop until your site is cleared of all trash. NPS
Staff opens Rim Drive to vehicle traffic at 6:00 pm.
