Wahkeena Falls/Larch Mountain Trail Party

September 8 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Crew Leader:  Riley M.
Hike Distance: 4 miles
Elevation Gain: 1500′
Hike Difficulty: Moderate
Work Difficulty: Easy
Work Description: Light maintenance and review of trails restored


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


Hiking information:


We will be hiking up the Larch Mt. trail switchbacks above Multnomah Falls, then from the Multnomah Falls Lodge to Return trail and up Wahkeena Falls. If you have questions or concerns about the hike, please contact volunteers@trailkeepersoforegon.org


What to expect:


You should expect to work in a fire-affected zone 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 recommended)

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

  • Long sleeved shirts recommended, long pants 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:  


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.
