The Crooked River Canyon property is approximately 101 acres and within the Wild and Scenic River Corridor in the lower Crooked River. The goal of this project is to create a loop-trail system that includes improved access to the river for boating, fishing, and hiking. With TU’s help, we hope to define the portion of the trail along the river by clearing the existing trail tread of grasses and vegetation, limbing and pruning to improve access to the water’s edge, and potentially moving rocks to ease navigation. There will also be opportunities to help decommission user-created trails above the river, to help direct future users onto the trail created by Trust for Public Land (TPL). Volunteers will need to bring work gloves, hiking or work boots, lunch, water, sunscreen, and backpack with layers for the weather. The trail system winds through a steep canyon slope, so this volunteer effort is only recommended if you are comfortable working on a steep slope and on uneven terrain. We will be meeting at the TU office at 8am for anyone who will like to carpool. To rsvp for this opportunity and ask questions about the day, contact Steph Rohdy from TPL (Stephanie.Rohdy@tpl.org) or for carpooling, contact Darek (firstname.lastname@example.org).
