Section of the new reroute trail.

As part of a floodplain restoration plan at the confluence of Coal Creek and the Middle Fork of the Willamette, volunteers spent the weekend working on a reroute of the Middle Fork Trail. In partnership with the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council and the USFS, volunteers from the Disciples of Dirt, GOATS, Alpine Trail Crew AssociationTrans-Cascadia and others built a beautiful new section of trail winding through the woods. Sawyers working on incredibly steep terrain cleared a corridor over Coal Butte in preparation for the second half of the reroute to be constructed later this summer. Thanks to everyone who came out and worked so hard, especially those who drove all the way from Portland and Bend. Huge thanks to Nick and Jessie from Trans-Cascadia for feeding our hungry workers.
