The TK_GO team is a rapid response group of volunteers who will lead crews on projects that require a swift call to action. Generally the type of projects this group tackles are clearing storm debris from high use trails by crosscut saw crews. Oregon Department of Transportation has advised the Forest Service that they will be closing the Historic Columbia River Highway between Multnomah Falls and Ainsworth State Park udring the week of Feb. 24th through 28th. Along this section of the Highway, Gorge Trail #400 between Ainsworth – Horsetail Falls – Oneonta Gorge remains closed and this highway closure will allow our teams to pull rock from the trail and safely roll it to the highway below. A mandatory detailed safety discussion will be held before work begins.
Because the fire-affected zone is potentially more hazardous than other sites where we work, the crew leader may decide to cancel the work party the day before, based on weather conditions. We will not work in high winds, excessive rain, or potential ice events. Volunteers are advised to check their emails the night before in case there are unanticipated work party cancellations.
We will be hiking up from Ainsworth day use area and gradual working our way west, clearing as much rock from the trail corridor. If you have questions or concerns about the hike, please contact email@example.com.
What to bring:
Bring your lunch, snacks and plenty of water.
What to wear:
We will park at the Ainsworth Day-use Area. Take I-84 to exit 35 head west on Historic Columbia River Highway/Hwy 30 towards Ainsworth State Park. Continue past Ainsworth campground entrance to second Day-use Parking Lot on Historic Highway.
