A lost trail found TKO

March 15, 2022

Over the summer of 2007, the Forum became the unofficial place where an informal project to rescue the Old Vista Ridge trail on Mount Hood was coordinated. In September 2007, members of the forum organized what would become TKO’s founding stewardship trip to Old Vista Ridge. Several folks from the forum met at the trailhead and brushed out nearly one-half mile of trail that hadn’t been maintained in decades. Seeing how much work they were able to accomplish in one day as a group of volunteers was the inspiration for creating TKO, and the first meeting of TKO was planned on the way down from the mountain that day.
