Overview

McIver State Park, located on the Clackamas River between Oregon City and Estacada, is a 950-acre park with camping, boating, hiking and horseback riding opportunities for its visitors. There are over 14 miles of trails for hikers and horseback riders in the park.

Project description

The Maple Ridge Trail is one of the most popular trails in this state park. It meanders for about a mile through forested areas. It is in need of maintenance to address a 2016 slide, as well as drainage in the lower sections of the trail. These two Tuesday work parties are the first of others that will be planned during the fall and winter season.

Hiking information

Hike to the work site will be no more than 1/2 mile.

What to expect

You should expect to work on a well-developed trail, using grubbing and brushing tools to improve tread and drainage.

What to bring

Bring a lunch and plenty of water, and snacks as desired. Also bring good work gloves, supportive boots, and rain gear as indicated by the weather forecast.

What to wear

Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)
Long sleeved shirts recommended
Clothing as appropriate for the weather
Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)
TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses
Directions:

Your crew leader will be in touch with specific directions and meet-up details.

GPS coordinates:

45.298221,-122.382924

For best results, use your GPS or a map guide from your own location. Car pool may be available; indicate your interest on the sign-up form.
