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


Overview: We’ll be removing slough and berm and installing drain dips 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 ~4 hours using hand digging tools. We will work in moderate rain, but will cancel or leave if weather becomes unsafe.


What to bring:



  • Plenty of water

  • Snacks


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 ~600 feet of elevation gain
