Trail Run and Trail Prep
Posted 23 September 2011 - 08:58 PM
Oh yeah, we'll be cuttin' things and digging in the dirt - so you might need gloves, a machette, pruners/loppers, shovel, or other tools. But if you don't have any of the above - don't fear, we'll have plenty for you to borrow. Amy said there is a barn full of tools that can be borrowed, so if you are lacking in the tool department, you can still come play.
To make this more appealing as a fun-packed day, we will supply lunch for you! We'll go simple BBQ - so grill up some burgers or dogs and veggie options, but if people want to bring along a side, salad, chips or something to drink, that will make it a party. Plan will be to start trail work at 11 to allow people their morning training run...
- OR -
Join for a Gorge trail run at 9am! And I have one in mind that is just down the road from the farm. Devil's Rest. I suppose you go past Angel's Rest as well, so you get to enjoy the Gorge views from both. It's nearly 3000' of gain over 11 miles, but this is a great lollipop trail loop.
Since everyone will want to bring long pants and sleeves and boots (if you have them) for trail work after the run (plus tools), we will plan to meet at the trailhead at 9 versus carpooling there. From there it's a short drive up the hill to Klock Farm. To get to the Angels Rest Trailhead: Head east from Portland on I-84, take Bridal Veil Exit #28. The trailhead is south of the Historic Columbia River Highway, opposite the junction with the interstate access road in Bridal veil.
Plan for Sunday, October 2, 2011:
9am Meet at Angel's rest trailhead for run
9-11 Angel's Rest/Devil's Rest Trail run
11-12 Probably bestto eat before we get busy working
11:30-4 Trail work at Klock Farm (you don't need to stay the whole time, so swing by or stay for whatever period you have available)
Address and directions to Klock Farm can be found on their web site:
Who feels like joining in for some or all of the fun?

Or: fb the trail run on trl page and in a different thread, might get more folks to come out? Even if it's just for the trail run.
Maybe make the decision the night before unless others speak up.
p.s Everyone can use the shower/bathroom/kitchen at the farm to get cleaned up and eat, etc.
In November, I will actually be moving out there into our daylight apt.

Plannin on the run so far, I'm goin to a concert the night before, therefore may be at risk for over sleeping, but should make the trail work at least.
Ok! Sweet then. It really would be fun to have a running partner cause Torrey will leave me in the dust. Well, actually you would too, but if you have a late night, then that would be my excuse to keep up

I'll run on my own before though.
