Free - $20.00
Tread and drainage work on the Cape Falcon Trail. Join for one day or all three!

Crew Leader: Emily A.

Max Size of Crew: 12

Hike Distance: Up to 6 mi./day

Elevation Gain: 400ft.

Hike Difficulty: Moderate to Hard

Work Difficulty: Moderate to Hard

Work Type: Digging drain trenches, dips, tread work, brushing

Project Information:

We’ll be constructing drainage features (trenches, dips) on the Cape Falcon Trail and getting creative to mitigate water interactions with this heavily-used scenic trail while working within archaeological parameters and guidelines for soil disturbance. Camping will be available at the group site at Nehalem Bay and you may join for single or multiple days of this trip, we need all the hands (and minds) we can get to improve this trail!

Hiking information:

The majority of the work will take place within the first mile and a half of the trailhead but the hike can be treacherous and muddy given the condition of the trail. We may make it out to the viewpoint one day to brush out the viewpoint portion of the trail which tends to grow in very heavily with salal.

You should plan to participate in this trail party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please do not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times from 1853 – 1871. We are privileged to be here today and we express gratitude to these tribes and their descendents for being the original and continuing stewards of these spaces.

EQUITY & INCLUSION: TKO seeks to make Oregon’s trails a place where people can go to connect with nature & one another. Not everyone feels safe or welcome in the outdoors due to issues that include racism, bias, and hate. We commit to being part of the solution to this problem and to enact change. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target any individual or group will not be tolerated by TKO, regardless of whether they are based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status.

PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical and emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, you may: interrupt directly, tell a crew leader, and/or inform TKO staff via the post-event survey.
