On a beautiful sunny day at Rocky Point with a clear view of the fertile farm fields below at Sauvie Island, we kicked off our 2nd NWTA TSI event of 2022. We started the day with introductions, a land acknowledgment, and a safety talk with ten participants and four instructors. After a briefing on tools and their uses, we headed out onto the trail to start our hands-on learning experience.
Our work area for the day was a new section of climb trail North of Rocky Point Road that will provide an improved user experience to access the trails further up in the trail system. During Trail School, we discussed trail sustainability aspects such as trail slope and drainage. We also discussed trail anatomy and one-on-one coaching on how to use trail tools. We wrapped up the day with invasive species spread mitigation and a thank you to all of our participants.
Shout out to Daniel S. for sharing his trail project with us and lending a hand.
Our next Trail School is this Sunday (Feb. 6) at the Easy Climb Trail in Cascade Locks. Click the button to learn more and register.
