The San Jacinto Trail Report is a 100% volunteer project, described in detail on the About page. To keep important safety information as clear and uncluttered as possible, the website does not carry advertising. Consequently the Report is wholly dependent on small private donations for its operating costs.
Please consider making a donation if you have found the Trail Report’s content to be useful to you. Thank you.
Some donors have set up automatic recurring donations via PayPal. Simply check the “make this a monthly donation” box at the PayPal link below. This option, for example at just $5 per month, provides extremely valuable long term support to the Trail Report.

For anyone visiting or living in Idyllwild, cash donations are accepted at Nomad Ventures on North Circle Drive. Nomad Ventures receives no benefit from this service, they simply support the mission of the Trail Report to help folks safely enjoy our local mountains.
Donations are used for the costs of maintaining the website, and for the costs of fieldwork to file updates. This is mainly the replacement of (very!) heavily used equipment, such as hiking boots and microspikes, and occasionally other worn-out gear. All labor is donated and completely volunteer, currently at over 1500 hours per year.
All funds raised are placed in a bank account specifically established, and used exclusively, for the San Jacinto Trail Report. Anyone wishing to view the accounts of the Trail Report is welcome to contact Jon.
All donors are fully recognized on the Supporters page.
Hiking several thousand miles a year to bring you the information and images in the Trail Report requires more mental energy than physical. Knowing that I have the support of those who read and benefit from the Report’s content is a powerful motivational force during many long days in the mountains.
Thank you very much for your support.
