Many of you may recall my end of year letter, sharing with you how my 3 year old son has grown up around TKO and the trails adventures we’ve been able to explore.

One of the most memorable trail projects that my husband Pat and I did for TKO was the design and construction of the Viewpoint Trail at Milo McIver State Park. We began this project in the fall of 2016 and completed it in June of 2017. This half-mile graveled trail connects the upper and lower sections of this 950-acre park. →

With recent closures of all Oregon State Parks, the Columbia Gorge Waterfall Corridor and Governor Brown’s Stay Home order, TKO recognizes we are navigating challenges we have never seen before. We support the land managers who have had to make these difficult decisions to protect staff, volunteers and visitors and the communities within these special places and accordingly, we will be postponing all our in-person volunteer activities through May.
