Volunteer with TKO! Dalton Point, February 23 & March 1

Post by Shoofly » February 11th, 2016, 8:17 am

Volunteer Trail Work Party
Dalton Point, Columbia Gorge
Tuesday, February 23, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM and
Tuesday, March 1, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM

Overview: Two short trails from the parking lot need to be graveled for easier access. The February 23 work party will be preparing the tread for the spread of the gravel, which will be done on March 1.

About the area: One exit west of Multnomah Falls, this wayside pull out is popular for easy access to the Columbia River.

Project Description: The trail to the west of the parking lot, about 400 feet long, needs some minor tread work and widening in preparation for laying the fabric and gravel. The trail to the east of the parking lot will eventually need a short re-route; for this part of the project we will be preparing only the first 100’ of trail.

Hiking Information: Hike will be no more than 400 feet, on flat terrain.

What to expect: No experience is necessary. You will be working with experienced crew leaders to remove debris and roots from the existing trail to prepare for gravel. You can expect to work at your own pace for up to 6 hours on flat but uneven terrain, with a lunch break mid-day. We will work rain or shine.

What to bring:
-Lunch and plenty of water. There is no water at the site.
-Rain gear (jacket and pants)
-Work gloves
-Extra set of clothes to change into in case it is wet

What to wear
:
-Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed)
-Work gloves
-Long sleeve shirt recommended
-Eye protection recommended (glasses, sunglasses or safety glasses). TKO will supply safety glasses if needed.

Directions will be sent via email prior to the work party date. Questions? Please email [email protected].

Please sign up here for February 23 or March 1.

In 2016, TKO plans to schedule work parties every other Tuesday, as well as the third weekend of the month (Saturday, Sunday, or both). Hope to see you all on the trail soon!
