In Kind Value of Volunteer Time

Oregon’s trails need upkeep and care. That’s where we come in.

Volunteer with Us

Almost all of today’s hiking trails were built more than 80 years ago.

Almost all of them are currently maintained by volunteers.

Explosive trail use and a lack of funding for trail maintenance is a real threat to our favorite trails.

In 2007, a group of concerned hikers founded Trailkeepers of Oregon. Our work takes the form of trail maintenance projects and advocacy work to restore proper funding to a resource so beneficial and beloved by Oregonians.

Backed by the generosity of hundreds of donors and volunteers, Trailkeepers of Oregon is committed to making sure everyone has access to Oregon’s most special places for years to come.

Owned and managed by TKO Forum & Field Guide Forum is an online community dedicated to hiking and exploring the outdoors in Oregon and southwest Washington. With more than 7,000 registered members, you’ll find new trip reports posted in our discussion forums daily. The Field Guide is the ultimate hiking resource – thoughtfully written by our community of hikers, the details will get you there and ensure you enjoy every meandering turn in the trail.
