Latourell Falls Trail Work Party [FULL]

April 4, 2018 at 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Free

Overview:
Latourell Falls is the westernmost waterfall in the Columbia Gorge, and thus the closest to Portland. The hike is a relatively gentle 2-mile loop to the upper falls and back. Because of the Eagle Creek fire, it is one of only two waterfall hikes open to the public in the Gorge, and so is experiencing a great deal of hiking traffic. The trail is in need of annual maintenance to address drainage and brushing issues.

Project description:
Two work parties in March did maintenance on the trail with the exception of the lower half of the west side of the loop trail. This section is mostly wide, compacted trail with several well-established drainages that need to be cleaned or improved.

Hiking information:
We will be hiking about 1-1 ½ miles total distance.


What to bring:


Bring your lunch, snacks and plenty of water.


What to wear:



  • Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)

  • Sturdy work gloves

  • Long sleeved shirts required

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

  • Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


Directions:  


Directions to the worksite will be provided to registered volunteers no later than 48 hours prior to the work party date, along with any other necessary information.
