Free

Crew Leader:

Hike Distance: 1 mile
Elevation Gain: minimal
Hike Difficulty: Easy

Work Description: Tread maintenance on newly-constructed trail



Overview:
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.


Project description:
Last fall and winter, TKO volunteers built a half mile of new trail connecting the older Vortex trail with the new Viewpoint trail. This trail is now in need of some brushing and touch-up, to remove vegetation from the tread surface that was not visible in the winter months.


Hiking information: 
The trail is flat and close to the gravel road, so very little hiking is necessary to get to the work areas. The total hiking distance will not be more than a mile.


What to expect:
You should expect to work on developed trail surfaces in a flat, wooded area. We will be working with trail tools, small saws and loppers. You will work with experienced crew leaders. No experience is necessary.


What to bring:
Bring your lunch and plenty of water.  Also bring good work gloves and supportive boots.


What to wear:



  • Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)

  • Long sleeved shirts recommended

  • 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:
McIver Park is located on Springwater Road. The GPS coordinates are:
