In general, our focus will be brushing vegetation that has overgrown the trail and that has grown up through the trail tread. This trail is a section of Gorge Trail #400 that runs through the Gorge. The section we will focus on is between Moffett Creek and Tanner Creek.
We will meet at 8:15 AM to organize a carpool down the bike path to the trailhead and then gather for a safety and tool talk before begining our project.
We will be hiking the Gorge Trail 400 starting at the Moffett Creek Trailhead and head east toward Tanner Creek brushing and clearing as we go. The hike will be over uneven terrain and will not be more than 3 miles round trip over fairly small elevation gains. If you have questions or concerns about the hike, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. You will be on a trail in a closed area due to the fire in the Gorge of 2017. 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.
