Tryon Creek Box Step Training

December 30, 2018 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm


Project description:

We are going to learn about proper box step construction. There are existing steps on the trail system that have been damaged and need replacing. We will be demonstrating proper installation techniques through an onsite project.

Hiking information:

We will start from the nature center and hike our way through the trail system. Total distance will depend on the amount of time it takes to haul materials to the site and do the required work. Total distance will not exceed 2 miles.

What to expect:

There will be a learning session in the morning, followed by bringing materials to site, and demonstrating installation. Since the area is small, we can offer for participants to hang around to finish off work or depart after the morning session.

What to bring:

  • Lunch

  • Plenty of water

  • Snacks

  • Gloves if you have them (loaner gloves available)

What to wear:

  • Boots (Please wear something sturdy that will protect your toes from sharp tools. No tennis shoes allowed!)

  • Work gloves (loaner gloves available)

  • Long sleeved shirts and pants.

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


Take I-5 to SW Terwilliger Blvd. Head east on SW Terwilliger Blvd until you see the Tryon Creek Natural Area on the right (aprox. 2.5 miles). Find parking near the nature center.
