On Thursday, April 6, SWTrails and Portland Parks will continue the work we began last month on the “Frey Property” trail in Marshall Park on approximately 150 yds of NEW trail in Marshall Park from Owl Creek Bridge up to Taylors Ferry Rd. The trail is part of a system of trails on the Metro Regional Trail list as the Hillsdale to Lake Oswego Trail.
Meet at the Mashall Park entrance on SW 18th at around 9489 SW 18th Place (https://goo.gl/maps/9nMb4Esx7ygR6vgA7) to then walk over to the work area across the Owl Creek Bridge and up the new trail route to the big white parks truck.
We need a lot of workers for this one as we do more grading of the trail, more moving ballast and cap onto the surface, doing step work, rock wall work, and overall creating a wonderful new trail.
As always, our work is guided by the Portland Parks Lands Stewardship folks. Parks will bring all the tools, gloves, and materials we need, and also, coffee, snacks and water. It is not necessary to stay for the whole event and you can work at whatever level your skill and energy allows. It is just great to meet the neighbors and get in a little trail work exercise.
When you join us, please wear work clothing, closed toe shoes and weather-appropriate layers. It is the NW who knows what weather we will get but several layers are always a good idea.
Please let me know if you can join us this Thursday. Email Dave (email@example.com) with a quick reply of “IN” if you can help. This allows Parks to know the tools and quantity of material to bring.
I hope to see you out on the trail this Thursday April 6th 9AM, Thanks for joining us to help the trails.
