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


It is time for TKO to do annual maintenance tasks at Milo McIver State Park.  This trail party will involve work on the Maple Ridge trail, a 2- mile loop trail where TKO volunteers have done work for the last 3 years.  There are two “step-over” logs that need to be removed, leaves to clear from drainages, an area that needs tread improvement, and possibly a culvert to install.  The trail is beautiful right now with fall color!




Hiking Information


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




What to Expect


You should expect to work on 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.

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