Oregon Coast Trail Party – Oswald West

March 2 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm


Come join Trailkeepers of Oregon as we begin work on the Oregon Coast Trail!

Overview: We’ll be taking on a guide log and trail decommissioning project on the Elk Flats trail to improve the hiking experience for park visitors. No experience is necessary – we’ll teach volunteers all the needed skills on site.

What to expect: Plan to hike less than a mile to the work area and work for ~6 hours using hand digging tools. 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. We will work in moderate rain, but will cancel or leave if weather becomes unsafe or impedes our ability to do quality work.

What to bring:

  • Plenty of water

  • Snacks

  • Lunch

What to wear:

  • Boots (Please wear something sturdy that will protect your toes from sharp tools. No tennis shoes allowed!)

  • Work gloves (loaner gloves available)

  • Long sleeved shirts and pants.

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses

Hiking Stats: Less than 2 miles total out and back with

Directions: Detailed directions will be provided via email 2 days before the work party.

Crew Leader: Susan Schen
