Project Overview:

We will be using crosscut saws to perform seasonal blowdown maintenance. This event will focus on more complex logout situations. If you are not yet a certified sawyer and would like to join this event to learn more, you can sign up as a swamper and help move cut peices, brush, limb, and work on the tread of the trail. If you are a certified sawyer, and need access to tickets, please email vito.perrone@trailkeepersoforegon.org

Bring your personal saw kit (wedges, axe, crosscut saw) if you have one. We will have a tailgate training review session (about 1/2 hr) before hiking the trail.

Hiking information:

Entering at Timberline Lodge on the Mountaineer Trail #798 , we will hike up to the junction with Pacific Crest Trail, head towards the Hidden Lake Trail #779 and clear logs as far as we’re able, time allowed.

Your pre-event emails will contain further details and links for both of these requirements.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times from 1853 – 1871. 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 the post-event survey.
