Event description

Welcome to the inaugural TRAIL MIX, inviting all trail users to come together for a fun day of trail work & stewardship in the Tillamook Forest. Whether you’re a mountain biker, trail runner, hiker & equestrian, trail work veteran or first-timer, we welcome you!

 

TRAIL MIX is presented by Northwest Trail Alliance, Trailkeepers of Oregon, Daybreak Racing & Oregon Timber Trail Association in a volunteer partnership with the Oregon Department of Forestry.

 

DATE: March 30, 2019

LOCATION: Gales Creek Campground on Hwy 6 (Wilson River Highway) near milepost 35

TIME: Safety meeting begins at 9:30am. Work from 10am-2pm.

WHAT TO BRING: Sturdy boots, work gloves, eye protection, long sleeved shirt, pants, rain gear (if needed), hard hat or bike helmet (extra hard hats will be available if you don’t have one), drinking water and a lunch/snacks.

SIGN UP: You must fill out the sign-up form prior to the work date. This is critical to our planning purposes.

 

ALL TRAIL WORK TOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED by the event supporters!! If you have your own hand tools, please bring them if you’d like to.

 

TIME LINE: We will break up into small groups, each led by an experienced crew leader who will guide their work throughout the day on their trail section. Cleanup efforts including raking, drainage clearing & fixing minor tread issues along Gales Creek, Storey Burn, and the Historic Hiking Loop trails.

 

AFTER PARTY! We will offer a chili dinner, carbonated beverages & Hopworks Urban Brewery Beers (for age appropriate volunteers) at the end of the work day back at Gales Creek Campground, along with great raffle prizes to give away, donated by event sponsors! Camping & an opportunity for a ride/run/hike the following day (Sunday, March 31st) is being planned, but will be highly dependent upon weather conditions. Expect and update regarding this option as we get closer to the work date.

 

We’ll send out 2 update emails with additional details – one at the end of February & one a week prior to the event. We hope to see you there!
