Tide Pool Spot and Lop at Cape Arago

March 29 at 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

TKO and TSOC team up for another exciting adventure. Come tide-pooling with a State Park’s expert and do some light trail work!

Crew Leader: Trevor B.

Max Size of Crew: 20

Hike Distance: Moderate

Elevation Gain: About 500 FT

Hike Difficulty: Moderate

Work Difficulty: Moderate

Work Type: Brushing

Project Information:

We will hike down the Cape Arago South Trail to the tide pools below. We will brush our way in and out and enjoy some nice tide pooling with a State Parks Ranger who is an expert in local maritime flora and fauna.

If time allows we may brush out a section of the pack trail as well. It should be a great excursion and day out on the beach!

Hiking information:

The trail is mostly paved, but there are some steep sections. The end section to the beach does require some climbing down steeper terrain. The whole hike is less than a mile down.

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.
