Stub New Trail Party – Turnpikes

November 29 at 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Free

Overview:


TKO is continuing a trail realignment of Williams Creek Horseshoe from an old logging road, a trail that loops off the Banks-Vernonia State Trail and reaches beautiful creek views within Stub Stewart State Park. This will be a follow up to complete the trail project and work on some structure building of 2 turnpikes. Turnpikes are trail structures that kind of act like an earthen boardwalk, raising the trail out of a mucky spot and still allowing water to continue to flow beneath. Come join us to help build these log structures. 


Hiking Information The work area is about 1/2 mile from where vehicles would be parked, about a 10-15 minute walk from the Banks-Vernonia State Trail to the trail project site. We will have park staff lead a caravan of vehicles down the paved bike path to the nearest trail connector. 


What to Expect


You should expect to work rain or shine building new trail. Because of the nature of this work party we will be spending much of the day off the trail on steep hillsides. Warm weather should be expected, so participants will be taking extra breaks to hydrate! 

What to Bring


Lunch, plenty of water, snacks, and gloves if you have them (loaner gloves available). 


What to wear:



  • Boots (tennis shoes are not recommended)

  • Sturdy work gloves (more than one pair is a good idea)

  • A light, long sleeved shirt required

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

  • Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


Directions:  


Directions to the worksite will be provided to registered volunteers no later than 48 hours prior to the work party date, along with any other necessary information.
