Punchbowl Falls Trail Party

March 31 at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Crew Leader: Chip Andrus

Project description:

Get that body and brain toned for the upcoming trail season with a day of rock scooting, boulder planting, and wall building. The new trail being built at Punchbowl Falls County Park (Hood River valley) will challenge your imagination on what works when trying to build trail in steep terrain.

The walk to the site is short and gravity will be working in our favor when moving large boulders from their source to destination so brute strength isn’t required. But you may want to brush up on your knowledge of physics (F = μN, where N = mg cos (θ)). We’ll be trading tasks throughout the day so you don’t end up doing something mundane all day (like being crew leader).

The work parties will be the last two Sundays of March, starting with the 24th. We’ll start by 9:00 and wrap things up by 3:00. No ticks and no poison oak — I promise. Snow? Well, no guarantees on that.

What to expect:

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.

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!)

  • 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


Directions will be provided to those who’ve registered approximately 48 hours before the event.
