Join TKO for a Trail Party adventure near Beverly Beach State Park. The Oregon Coast Trail is in disrepair and needs some fixing!
We will focus on cutting brush to open up the trail corridor and get the trail back in shape. Most of the trail is in an existing power line corridor and alongside the 101.
The stretch of trail in need goes between Rocky Creek and Fogarty Creek along the highway, ocean, and within a power line corridor.
There are scenic viewpoints at either end, but the rest of the trail is adjacent to the highway under power lines. The hike is not very strenuous overall but goes over some uneven terrain. Expect to hike 2 miles round trip each day.
Volunteers are also invited to camp with TKO at Beverly Beach free of charge. To be eligible for a camping spot, volunteers must complete a day of service before or after their chosen night of camping.
The camp facilities are a closed hiker/biker camp State Parks has made available to TKO volunteers. There are also limited car camping options available adjacent to the hiker/biker site.
If you would like to camp, contact Noelle at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements, or for more information.
*NOTE: Volunteers who choose to camp should be prepared to be entirely self-sufficient. Volunteers are expected to abide by all State Park’s rules during off-hours and will be responsible for their own safety, comfort, and well-being.
Volunteers are expected to come equipped with everything they need to be successful for a night of camping.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes and communities. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government. We are privileged to be here today and we express gratitude to these tribes and their descendants for being the original and continuing stewards of these spaces.
ACCOMMODATION REQUESTS: TKO seeks to make our events inclusive of people of all backgrounds and abilities. If you would like to discuss potential accommodations to allow for your participation in this event, please click here to complete a short Google survey. TKO staff will then contact you to discuss options. Please note: available accommodations will vary by event and typically need to be requested a minimum of two weeks in advance. If you have any questions, please contact TKO Stewardship Manager Lindsay McIntosh-Tolle at email@example.com.
EQUITY & INCLUSION: TKO seeks to make Oregon’s trails a place where people can go to connect with nature & one another. Not everyone feels safe or welcome in the outdoors due to issues like racism, bias, and hate. We commit to being part of the solution to this problem and to enact change. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target any individual or group will not be tolerated by TKO, regardless of whether they are based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status.
PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical and emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, you may: interrupt directly, tell a crew leader, and/or inform TKO staff via the post-event survey.
While TKO no longer requires masking/vaccination for its events, we do support those who feel masking is necessary for their own safety. We ask participants to respect the health of folks who wear masks by distancing or wearing a mask while in close proximity.
