McIver Park Viewpoint Trail-Basic Trail Maintenance

April 30, 2022 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

We will complete the annual maintenance of the Viewpoint Trail that we began on April 2nd.

Crew Leader: Pat K., Elaine K.

Max Size of Crew: 12

Hike Distance: 1/2 mile

Elevation Gain: (in ft) 200

Hike Difficulty: Easy/

Work Difficulty: Moderate

Work Type: (Brushing, Tread shaping)

Project Information:

The Viewpoint Trail was built by TKO volunteers in 2016-2017. It is in need of spring maintenance. This includes brushing back vegetation, re-shaping the trail tread surface using tread tools. We will also spread gravel on parts of the trail where the gravel has been pushed away over time. We will do a small trail re-alignment to decrease water flow over the trail surface.

This is an excellent opportunity for those new to trail work to learn the “basics” of seasonal trail maintenance.

Hiking information:

The Viewpoint Trail is 1/2 mile long and is accessed from both top and bottom. The trail surface is gravel.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times from 1853 – 1871. We are privileged to be here today and we express gratitude to these tribes and their descendents for being the original and continuing stewards of these spaces.

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 that include 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.
