Free

Crew Leader: Kim K.
Hike Distance: 1 mile

Work Description:  Restoring tread, brushing, clearing blocked drainage

TKO is pleased to partner with Metro for an opportunity to address trail maintenance at a beloved regional park!  


This trail party will focus on basic maintenance throughout the day (restoring tread, brushing back encroaching vegetation, clearing blocked drainage).  This trip would be suitable for people looking for a beginner’s trail party as well as minors 14 years age and above (with parent or guardian present, per Metro rules).


Note: The area is awash in trailing blackberry, salmonberry and stinging nettles.  Please bring good gloves, if you have them.  Also, the trail can get very muddy, even on dry days, so please be prepared; bring clothes you can get dirty, and something to change into afterwards.


Hiking information:


We will be hiking perhaps a mile over the course of the day, with very little elevation gain.


What to expect:


We will meet at the Welcome Center no later than 8:30 before driving to our work site within the park.You should expect to participate in this work party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please to not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.


You do not need to pay for parking; a free parking pass will be provided the day of the event.


There is very limited cell phone reception within the park.  We’ll be relying on park radios should an emergency arise.


What to bring:



  • Lunch

  • Plenty of water

  • Snacks

  • Gloves if you have them (loaner gloves available)


What to wear:



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