Clackamas River Trail Party – Go Beyond Racing

May 11 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Join other Go Beyond Racing members working on the popular Clackamas River Trail. The trail is 8 miles in length and follows the Clackamas River from Indian Henry trailhead downriver to Fish Creek trailhead, located just off of Hwy 224, 16 miles south of Estacada. Pup Creek Falls, located at the 4-mile mark from either trailhead, is a common destination point for hikers. The trail is in need of general maintenance of tread and drainage.


Date: Saturday May 11, 2019 8:30am-3:30 pm. 


Work includes:



  • Maintenance of the lower half of the trail, from Pup Creek downriver to the Fish Creek trailhead. We will be fixing tread creep from the backslopes on this steep trail, improving drainage, and repairing tread where needed.

  • You will be working on an existing trail surface in steep terrain. You may have opportunities to work with specialty tools such as a rope puller, as needed to do the work. You will work with experienced crew leaders. No experience is necessary.


Other Information:


Hiking distance may be as much as two miles each way (four miles round trip) although it could extend farther, depending on the group’s experience and energy level.
