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. The Viewpoint Trail, built by TKO in 2016-2017, is a half-mile trail that connects the upper and lower sections of the park.


Project Description

We will be working on two projects on the Maple Ridge trail, and volunteers will have the option to alternate between them at mid-day.

Project #1 will be to use the mechanical toter to move gravel and then spread it to reinforce a section of the trail prior to the bridge gabion project.  The toter will also be used to move large gabion rocks to a staging area near the bridge.

Project #2 will be to continue work, and hoepfully finish, a trail realignment that was started in the fall. If we are able to complete it, we will also decommission the existing trail segment.

Hiking Information

The hiking distance is furthest to the realignment, and is about 1 mile round trip.

What to Expect

We will be shoveling gravel into the toter, and hand-placing the gabion rocks into the toter. You will have the opportunity to drive the toter if you wish.  We will be spreading gravel and moving rocks from the toter to a staging area.

In the second project, we will be completing tread work to open this new trail segment.

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