Overview

Project Description

Last month TKO volunteers worked on a trail realignment on the Maple Ridge trail, which will eliminate a short, steep, and slippery section of the trail.  Now we will return to complete that project and decommision the existing trail segment.  If time permits, we will work on another section of this trail where drainage is a problem.


Hiking Information

The trail climbs gently from the trailhead to the ridge and then is flat.  Total  round trip hiking distance will not be more than 2 miles.


What to Expect

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