Upper Salmon River Trail Party

July 28 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm


Crew Leader:  Jim C.
Hike Distance: 5.9 miles
Elevation Change: 500′
Hike Difficulty: Easy
Work Difficulty: Easy
Work Description: Brushing of trail corridor

TKO is continuing to brush out the corridor of the Fir Tree / Dry Fir / Salmon River trails, just south of Trillium Lake Day Use Area within the Mt. Hood National Forest. Only pre-registered volunteers will be accepted up to 10 participants due to restrictions of group size in Wilderness areas, but keep an eye on registrations as cancelations can happen and spots would open until 6PM the night before the event.

We will be hiking from the trailhead a total of 2 miles into the east end of the Salmon River Trail by way of the Fir Tree Trail loop. Brushing of the corridor will be completed to Forest Standards of a Class II Wilderness Trail.

Potential cancellation: 

The crew leader may decide to cancel the work party, based on weather conditions. We will not work in high winds or potential storm events.  Volunteers are advised to check for emails the night before and morning of in case there are unanticipated work party cancellations.  

Hiking information:

We will be hiking in approximately TWO MILES, up to an additional MILE, for a possible round trip total of up to 5.9 MILES. If you have questions or concerns about the hike, please contact jim.coleman@trailkeepersoforegon.org

What to expect:

You should expect to work over uneven terrain, with many obstacles to climb over and/or remove. A mandatory detailed safety discussion will be held before work begins.

What to bring – Bring your lunch, snacks and plenty of water.

What to wear:

  • Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)

  • Sturdy work gloves (more than one pair is a good idea)

  • Long sleeved shirts required

  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

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

  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


Directions to the worksite will be provided to registered volunteers no later than 48 hours prior to the work party date, along with any other necessary information. We will meet at the Trillium Lake Day use area (see map) and then carpool to trailhead as there won’t be enough room for many vehicles.
