Project Overview:

The Gales Creek trail starts at the Summit trailhead on Hwy 6 and drops down Divide Creek to Gales Creek.  TKO built a large section of new trail last year.  We will be returning to this section to improve some parts.  After sitting for a year the trail has settled and we will be doing the final finish work.

Hiking information:

The work area is about 1.5 miles from the Summit trail head. Most of the work will be on the trail we worked on in previous work parties.

What to expect:

You should expect to participate in this work party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please to not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.

You should expect to work rain or shine.  If there is rain there will be some mud but mostly working on completed trail.

  • Lunch

  • Plenty of water

  • Snacks

  • Gloves if you have them (loaner gloves available)

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

The Summit trail head is about 35 miles West of Portland on Hwy 6. Take Hwy 26 West out of Portland and take Hwy 6 towards Tillamook . Keep going about 3 miles past the Gales Campground sign. At mile post 33, look for a large gravel pull out on the right with a trail head sign. GPS coordinates: 45°37’26.9″N 123°22’31.4″W
