Sponsored by our friends at the Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory, Travel Oregon & Bureau of Land Management, Timber School is coming to Mt. Hood!

Hosted by Trailkeepers of Oregon with support from Oregon’s Mt. Hood Teritory, Travel Oregon and the Bureau of Land Management, we are pleased to offer Trailkeepers University Timber School training weekend in June 2024!

With projects to tack across many iconic Mt Hood trails, TKO Crew Leaders, as well as partner and agency instructors, will deliver a comprehensive trails training themed in all things timber structure building. The weekened will include options to focus on bridge, step-and-runs, or boardwalk building.

Timber School aims to set a foundation in risk management while building high quality timber trail structures. We’ve got the fun training all figured out, plus food/refreshments and a beautiful place to stay – grab a bunk, pitch your tent, or rent a room for the weekend and get ready to build!

Your registration includes:

  • 2.5 days on the trail building topics in large group and breakouts.
  • Meals from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch (vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options available).
  • Lodging – you have the option of bunking in a shared 4-8 person bunk room (bring your own bedding) or tent camping (bring your own tent and camping gear).
