Come join SUTA and see a gorgeous section of the brand new Jack-Ash Trail up close!
We will be hiking about three miles round trip from the new Anderson Ridge Trailhead.
Where: Meet at the end of the pavement on Anderson Butte Road at 8:30 AM . We will carpool/caravan to the Anderson Ridge TH – three miles further out Anderson Butte Rd. (see directions below)
When: Saturday, October 28, 2017 8:30AM-1:30PM (includes lunch provided by SUTA)
What: Trail maintenance on the Jack-Ash Trail – cutting out vegetation popping back up and other trail work as needed. We cancel only if heavy rain is forecast.
What to Bring: Wear comfortable hiking or work boots, dress in layers and bring gloves. Bring water and whatever special snacks you like. If you have them, please bring loppers, a pruning saw or a tread tool such as a Pulaski, grubber, rake or sturdy shovel.
RSVP: If you plan to come, please email SUTAoregoncontact@gmail.com so we can plan the work party and food!
Directions: Anderson Butte Road (not Anderson Creek Rd) comes off of Griffin Creek Road. Where Griffin Creek Rd and Griffin Lane intersect, turn onto Griffin Creek Road and follow it about 1.5 miles until Griffin Creek Road turns left again (becomes a gravel road) off the main paved road. Continue straight on the main paved road which is now called Anderson Butte Road – heading uphill. Drive to the top of the mountain to where the pavement ends – about 3 miles. We will meet at the wide turn-out lined with boulders next to the Griffin Gap TH before caravaning to the Anderson Ridge TH.
