Silver Falls Trail Maintenance October 2017

Chemeketan Silver Falls Trail Maintenance October 14th, 2017
As part of the clubs sponsorship of Silver Falls State Park we provide trail maintenance on the Silver Falls backcountry trails. This event is open to everyone and will involve work on the Perimeter Trail and may include some bridge repairs.  We will also get a chance to check out new sections of the Catamount Trail. Meet at the park headquarters office at 9 am.  We will talk about the plan, hand out tools and take 4x4 vehicles to the area we will be working on. 

We will be meeting at the Park Office (see map below). Note that the entrance to the park headquarters is across the street from the main park entrance. It will be on the left after you exit the highway. Come dressed with gloves, water, lunch/snack, sturdy footwear and clothes appropriate for the weather. We will go rain or shine.  We will be done no later than 3PM.  

Carpooling From Salem?  Meet at the State Motor Pool on Airport Road in Salem at 8 am. (1100 Airport Rd. between State and Mission St.) Please RSVP to trip leader Mike Niemeyer at so we can coordinate carpooling and make sure we have enough tools.
