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.
Punchbowl Falls is a gem of a park. Within its footprint are two waterfalls, basalt cliffs, two muscular rivers, bald eagles, and spawning steelhead. As a bonus, nothing but the sounds of the wild in the background. Spend your Sunday blissed out on nature and help create this special community trail.
