Beacon Rock - Hardy Ridge Day Work Party
The Hardy Ridge Trail needs brushing, treadwork, and debris clearing to keep it in tip top shape. Come lend a hand maintaining this volunteer built route.
About the Area
The Hardy Ridge loop hike makes use of the old logging roads that wind through the backcountry of the park north of Highway 14. These routes are closed to vehicles but open to equestrians, mountain bikers and hikers. A WTA built single-track trail traverses the ridge, offering, on a nice day, a wide vista of the Columbia River Gorge.
What to Expect
We'll have fun, work hard and make a difference! No experience is necessary.
Brushing and tread maintenance. The crew will meet at the Equestrian Trailhead at 8:30 then consolidate vehicles to pass through the locked gate on the double track that leads to the single-track trail.
Our hike to the project site is expected to be up to 2-3 miles roundtrip over hilly and sometimes steep terrain.
