Come join Trailkeepers of Oregon as we work on a brand new segment of the Oregon Coast Trail from Neahkahnie Mountain to Nehalem Road in Manzanita!! Plan to hike less than a mile to the work area and work using hand digging tools, loppers, and hand saws. We prioritize safety and fun over quantity of work accomplished and encourage people to try different things and work at a comfortable pace. No experience is necessary — you’ll be working with experienced crew leaders who will teach you all you need to know. We’ll end the day with TKO-provided beverages and salty snacks. 

Seaside Lodge & International Hostel (https://www.seasidehostel.net/index.html) has generously offered discounted rates for guests doing trail work with TKO on the coast. Call to make a reservation and mention that you’re coming to this trail party to get the discount. They have single room and dorm-style accommodations.
