Columbia Gorge Service Trip with Portland State University Outdoor Program

March 7 at 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Donation

CREW LEADER: Drew Stock

HIKE DISTANCE: Up to 3.6 miles roundtrip

ELEVATION GAIN: Up to 1070′

HIKE DIFFICULTY: Easy

WORK DIFFICULTY: Moderate

WORK DESCRIPTION: Tread work, drainage, and other work to be determined

This event is in collaboration with the Portland State University Outdoor Program and is only open to members of that program. The trail party will be at the Tom McCall Preserve, which is managed by The Nature Conservancy. We’ll be working to resolve drainage issues and repair erosion damage on a section of the McCall Point trail.

What to expect:

You should expect to hike and use a variety of different tools over uneven terrain, with the possibility of obstacles to climb over and/or remove. A mandatory detailed safety discussion will be held before work begins. For safety reasons, we expect volunteers to stay for the duration of the trail party. Please do not expect to be able to arrive late or to leave early. 

What to bring:

  • Sturdy boots/hiking shoes. Boots are ideal as they provide toe and ankle protection, but low-cut hiking shoes with toe protection and a tread that provides traction in muddy conditions will work also. For safety reasons, we cannot allow trail running shoes, tennis shoes, sandals etc. during the trail work sessions

  • Long sleeved shirt and work pants – wear what you won’t mind getting dirty in

  • Rain gear and warm layers – it is March in the Gorge, please come prepared for all weather 🙂

  • Work gloves – we will have loaner pairs available

  • Water bottle – 2L minimum highly recommended

  • A sack lunch and trail snacks

  • Daypack – for carrying all of the above
