Trail 400 at McCord Creek

January 23 at 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Free

Crew Leader: Brian Emery


Time: We will meet at the trailhead at 8:30 AM, have a safety and tool talk, and get started on our work. We plan to be back to the cars by 3:00 PM.


Project description: This section of the 400 trail begins on the east side of McCord Creek and heads east. This trail was impacted by the Eagle Creek fire and the year-long closure has impacted it as well. There are many rocks to be moved and tread restoration to do as well.


Hiking information: We will start from the paved bike path and work our way up the trail. Total distance will depend on the amount of time it takes to do the required work. Total distance will not exceed 1 mile. 


What to expect: You should expect to work on a trail that has been impacted by the Eagle Creek fire and a year of closure. There are rocks and slide material on the trail. It is very close to the freeway so is quite noisy.


You should expect to participate in this work party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please do not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.


Potential Cancellation: 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/heat, or potential ice events. Volunteers are advised to check their emails the night before in case there are unanticipated work party cancellations.


What to bring: Bring your lunch and plenty of water.  Also bring good work gloves and supportive boots.


What to wear:



  • Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)

  • Long sleeved shirts recommended

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

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

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses
