Multiple trail users join forces to clear the Wilson River Trail.

Hikers, Trail Runners & Mt. Bikers Unite!

10 volunteers from 3 different user groups gathered on Saturday (6/8)morning ready to clear overgrown brush on the Wilson River Trail in the Tillamook State Forest. Starting from the King’s Mountain trailhead the crew worked their way clearing salmonberry & ferns that have long been encroaching on to the trail.

It takes a small army to clear trails for everyone to use.

The group widened the corridor in a very overgrown section about 1 mile from the trailhead. After removing salmon berry they restored the area by transplanting a number of ferns to insure the single track trail experience.

Before & after

The primary focus of this work party was to clear the overgrowth in that one location but we managed to get a bit of brushing done along to & from the site.

Our work on the Wilson River Trail has just started. Be on the look out for additional work parties in the Fall. If you would like to help email: [email protected]

BIG THANKS goes to all the hardworking volunteers and event sponsor Lagunitas Brewing for post work refreshments.
