Project Description

Join this trail work party to help finish a piece of the PNT. Together, we’ll work to complete an important trail reroute that our partners at the US Forest Service started in 2020. (Read more about the project at our blog.)

During this trip we will construct a puncheon bridge to protect a stream, approximately half a mile in from the Cougar Creek trailhead (Clackamas Mountain TR 312b).

Crew leaders work on the trail for the duration of the trip, but volunteer crew members are free to participate for as long as they like— whether that’s for part of a day, or a multi-day adventure. Meals are included for multi-day participants who camp with the leaders.

See Resources (below) for Frequently Asked Questions and daypack recommendations.
