We have reports of some logs down across the Burnt Lake Trail! This trail has a gradual elevation gain for 3.4 miles until reaching the intersection of Zigzag Mountain Trail #775. We will start at the Burnt Lake South Trailhead #772 and use crosscut saws to remove as many logs as we can. Volunteers without a current crosscut certification can sign up under the Volunteer RSVP ticket and help us remove logs and brush (Swampers).
(Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you have any questions)
We will hike approximately 3.4 miles, and gain 1,500 feet in elevation clearing logs until we reach the intersection of Zigzag Mountain Trail #775. If time allows, we will continue on the Burnt Lake Trail to Burnt Lake.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times from 1853 – 1871. We are privileged to be here today and we express gratitude to these tribes and their descendents for being the original and continuing stewards of these spaces.
EQUITY & INCLUSION: TKO seeks to make Oregon’s trails a place where people can go to connect with nature & one another. Not everyone feels safe or welcome in the outdoors due to issues that include racism, bias, and hate. We commit to being part of the solution to this problem and to enact change. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target any individual or group will not be tolerated by TKO, regardless of whether they are based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status.
PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical and emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, you may: interrupt directly, tell a crew leader, and/or inform TKO staff via the post-event survey.
