Project Information:

We’ll be shaping the last bit of the trail near the intersection with the main trail system. For this we’ll hike only a very short distance, though we may take a quick tour of the rest of the trail. We’ll use digging tools to shape the tread and shovels/wheelbarrow/tamper to lay gravel on the freshly dug trail surface.

We’ll hike only 200 yards to the project site, but may hike a total of about a mile to tour the rest of the trail. You should plan to participate in this trail party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please do not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.

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 descendants 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.
