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

Camp hosts have built a bench that they would like to have placed at about the mid-point of the trail, where there is an excellent view of Mt. Hood and the Clackamas River.  To create space for this bench, we will be removing and re-positioning existing curb logs and cutting back the bank (backslope).  as well as brushing back blackberries near the proposed bench site.
