Description

Trail Maintenance Event Rating: Easy-Moderate

This work party will consist of light maintenance on several parts of the trail system, including light brushing, tread cleaning, and some limbing. The Easy group should experience less than 2 miles of trail work, while the Moderate group should expect up to 4 miles. Please wear sturdy work clothes and heavy footwear, and bring gloves along with any favorite tools. We will be working for several hours, so bring a trail lunch and lots of water. Tools will be provided (shovels, McLeods, Reinharts, Pulaskis, rakes, loppers, etc). We will meet at the Otter Bench Trailhead at the end of Horny Hollow Road at Crooked River Ranch for a fun and rewarding day.

If you have questions, please contact Jeff Scheetz, Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area’s Trail Monitoring Coordinator, at 503-277-9110.

Group size is limited to 15 people. If you sign up and later need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so that people on the wait list can be invited to join this work party. Thank you!

Driving directions: Travel north on Chinook Drive past the Crooked River Ranch Golf Course and commercial area. The road becomes Horny Hollow. Follow this to the end of the road.
