The trail is 8 miles in length and follows the Clackamas River from Indian Henry trailhead downriver to Fish Creek trailhead, located just off of Hwy 224, 16 miles south of Estacada. Pup Creek Falls, located at the 4-mile mark from either trailhead, is a common destination point for hikers. The trail is in need of general maintenance of tread and drainage.
We will be meeting at the Fish Creek trailhead and driving in tandem or carpooling to the Indian Henry trailhead at the upper end of this trail. Within the first 1.5 miles, there are two large logs that need to be cut, as well as some needed repair of the tread surface. Experienced saw teams will cut the logs, but other volunteers will have an opportunity to participate. There is also an opportunity for up to 2 volunteers to hike a total of 6 miles round trip to Pup Falls, with a saw team, to cut and remove a up to three logs. Pending discussion with the ranger, there may be a third saw team hiking up about 2 miles from the Fish Creek trailhead to remove a complex log.
See above for information about hiking distance.
