McIver State Park, located on the Clackamas River between Oregon City and Estacada, is a 950-acre park with camping, boating, hiking and horseback riding opportunities for its visitors. There are over 14 miles of trails for
hikers and horseback riders in the park.
The project will depend on several factors. Volunteers are currently working on improving parts of the Vortex trail, one of two trails that connect the upper and lower sections of the park. If there is still work to be done there, we may work there. If not, your crew leaders will scout and evaluate other areas where there is room for improvement of the trail system.
More detailed information will be given to you in the pre-trail party notice, 48 hours prior to the date.
Trails at McIver State Park are generally gently uphill, on well-established surface. The maximum hiking distance, regardless of the project, is expected to be less than 2 miles total.
You should expect to work on developed trail surfaces using a variety of tools, including small saws, hand tools, and loppers. You will work with experienced crew leaders. No experience is necessary.
Bring your lunch and plenty of water.
Also bring good work gloves and supportive boots.
McIver Park is located on Springwater Road. The GPS coordinates are:
For best results, use your GPS or a map guide from your own location. Directions to
the trailhead will be given to the participants prior to the work party date.
