Mt Hood Chapter PCTA has adopted the trail. We do regular maintenance on it. We're leading crews this Tuesday 2/21, Wednesday 2/22, Thursday 2/23, Friday 2/24. These will have 4 single day work trips, however, you can sign up for any one day or multiple days.

Most of our crews we recruit through our email distribution. Find out more at http://longtrails.com/mthood/

People are passing around screencaps of those emails now.

Lots of interest out there for helping out on this one in particular.

Sure would be nice to have a link to give them.

Good to hear that there's interest in helping.
As of this morning, all four crews are filled (and overfilled).
There will be more crews. We think this has been another hard winter.

That's great, really good to hear, Roberta!

If you'd like to post future notices on the PortlandHikers Facebook page, which hits the newsfeed of about 6000 local hikers, please, feel free to reach out there, too. :)
