Stub New Trail Party

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

Free

Overview:


TKO is hosting a trail party to keep after this trail project that will enhance the trail experience for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians! A trail realignment of Williams Creek Horseshoe from an old logging road, the trail loops off the Banks-Vernonia State Trail and reaches beautiful creek views within Stub Stewart State Park. This will be a final pass of trail tread and prepping logs for 2 turnpikes sections across some muddy spots. 


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. Cold weather should be expected, so participants will be encouraged to keep warm with layers! 

What to Bring


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


What to wear:



  • Boots (tennis shoes 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.
