A small 6 person group to tackle the Winter/Spring tree fall along the East section of the SRT.

Crew Leader: Guy H.

Hike Distance: approx. 5 mi.

Due to heightened safety policies and procedures that we are adhering to during the COVID-19 pandemic, trail party events are currently only open to volunteers who have accumulated 25 or more trail parties with TKO (volunteer days with WTA, PCTA or other trail orgs will be considered as well) and/or are in an Assistant Crew Leader/ Crew Leader position within TKO. Thank you for understanding.

If you are interested in supporting our work in the meantime, the best thing you can do to help out is make a donation at trailkeepersoforegon.org/donate. Oregon’s trails thank you!

We are beginning at 2.7 miles from the trailhead and consequently a longer RT hike.

Directions

From Sandy OR, east to Government Camp. Approx 2 miles east, turn south at the Trillium Lake exit. Immediately after that turn, we will meet at the Trillium Lake Sno-Park and then caravan to the Salmon River Trail trailhead.

Rest room facilities at the Rest Stop off SR26 at Government Camp.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times from 1853 – 1871. We are privileged to be here today & express gratitude to the descendants of these tribes for being the original stewards of this land.

EQUITY & INCLUSION: TKO seeks to make Oregon’s trails a place where people can go to connect with nature & one another. Not everyone feels safe & welcome in the outdoors due to racism, bias & hate. We commit to being part of the solution to change that. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target individuals or groups will not be tolerated by TKO, regardless of whether they are based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical & emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable/unsafe – interrupt directly, tell a crew leader &/or complete the post-event survey.
