This section of the closed 400 trail begins on the east side of McCord Creek and heads east towards Moffett Creek. We will be returning to this trail for the first time since summer. There are many brush, plant and tree debris to be moved from the tread for safety. We will meet at 8:15 AM in the parking lot and then carpool to another location for a safety and tool talk before beginning our project.
We will be on the Trail 400 Trail in the Gorge, meeting at the John B. Yeon Trailhead and then carpooling to Moffett Creek to begin our hike .The hike will be over uneven terrain and will not be more than 3 miles round trip. There is about 300′ elevation to climb to the project site. If you have questions or concerns about the hike, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to expect:
You should expect to hike and use a variety of different tools over uneven terrain, with the possibility of obstacles to climb over and/or remove. You will be on a trail in a closed area due to the Eagle Creek fire in 2017. A mandatory detailed safety discussion will be held before work begins.
