We have two trees remaining on Trail 400 near Moffett Creek that need to be removed. This trail party will involve a great deal of swamping, as well as participating in sawing out these two trees to reopen the trail.
We’ll walk approximately a mile to the work site on a closed, unmaintained trail over terrain that is at times steep, rocky, and/or overgrown with blackberry vines.
We hope to finish before the trail party end time, but will need to stay until this task has been completed, and since we’ll be working in the burn zone all personnel must all arrive and leave together. Anyone joining the work party will need to commit to remaining at the work site until we’re done, regardless of the time frame.
What to bring:
Required: You will need to bring your own eye protection and high-quality protective gloves. This party will not be able to provide these items for you and they’re a necessity in the burn zone.
Please bring any small saws or loppers you have.
Bring snacks, plenty of water and your lunch.
An extra set of clothes to change into at the end of the day is a good idea, as we will be working in a sooty, potentially muddy area.
What to wear:
Drive I-84 east to Exit 35 for the Historic Highway, Ainsworth State Park, Dodson and Warrendale. After 0.1 mile, turn left for Dodson, Warrendale and Hood River. In another 0.1 miles, make a right turn onto NE Frontage Road for Dodson. Drive 2.1 miles on Frontage Road and then pull into parking on the right for John B. Yeon State Park.
Please contact me if you can’t make it for one reason or another. Thank you, and looking forward to seeing you on the 17th!
