Summary of work goals

• Stabilize parts of the existing trail tread

• Narrow the existing trail in some areas; widen in others

• Improve drainage in areas of the existing trail most susceptible to puddling and widening

Specific work focus

Summer is in full swing at Hagg Lake, and the trail needs our love! In partnership and preparation for the August 4 trail racing event with XTERRA Portland, we will be brushing and clearing vegetation 2 feet away from either side of the tread, removing any downed trees, and clearing out any full drainage dips. No experience necessary; enjoy good company, beverages, and a raffle afterwards! Check out the August 4 XTERRA racing events and sign up today.
