Devil’s Rest/Angel’s Rest Trail party

October 24 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free
A chance to get out on the trail and become familiar with the updated trail party procedures.

Crew Leader: Drew S.

Hike Distance: up to 6 miles

Elevation Gain: up to 1600′ elevation gain

Hike Difficulty: Moderate

Work Difficulty: Easy

Work Description: Annual Maintenance/ Brushing

In the days of C-19 we ask for a little more experience leading into your first volunteer event. Since we’ve added mitigations of risk around physical distancing, our volunteer leaders are not as able to hover about and answer hands-on questions throughout the trail party. And if an emergency does develop, we need our participants to be even more aware of our safety procedures. Don’t worry, trailkeeping is for everybody and we made it easy to get going.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that this trail travels through the traditional lands of the Chinook people as well as other tribes. These indigenous people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government in 1855. We are privileged to be here today & express gratitude to the descendants of these tribes for being the original stewards of this land.

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 & welcome in the outdoors due to racism, bias & hate. We commit to being part of the solution to change that. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target individuals or groups 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, or socioeconomic status.

PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical & emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable/unsafe – interrupt directly, tell a crew leader &/or complete a post-event survey.
