Trailbuilding at Punchbowl Falls Nature Park


This summer we will start building a new trail system at Punchbowl Falls. Just like the mountain bike trails at Post Canyon, the walking trails at Punchbowl will be built by volunteers.

Trail Keepers of Oregon has kindly offered to help us with the technical stuff, but we need local volunteers to get the work done. We especially need some folks to be crew leaders. If that sounds like a fun and rewarding way to give back to this special place, let us know.

We encourage anyone interested in trailbuilding to go to college–Columbia Cascades Trail Skills College!

This is run by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and will teach you everything you need to know to be a crew leader at Punchbowl.

Trail Skills College, April 22-24 in Cascade Locks

Registration begins today, and it will fill up very quickly. The courses range from beginner to expert, so it’s a good way for anyone interested in trail building and stewardship to develop specialized skills.

Again, this fills up almost immediately, so folks really need to sign up asap.

Contact Heather Staten, or (541) 490-5225 if you have questions.
