Group Trail Work Days


Thank you so much for your interest in helping maintain the Portland Trails network. We would love to have your group on the trails! Please have your group leader fill out this form, and our Trail Volunteer Coordinator, Daniel, will be in touch as soon as possible. Please note, it may take up to 2 weeks before he can get back to you.

Suggested Donation:

Thank you for lending your time to the trails! We can't keep them in great shape year-round without your help. We ask for a donation to help offset the cost of materials and staff resources that go into making your trail work day a success. The suggested donation begins at $100 a group, and for groups larger than 10 people, we suggest a donation of $10 per person. Have a question about this? Please contact Sheila at

I realize that participating as a volunteer on trail work and/or at an event associated with it is a potentially hazardous activity. I agree to abide by any decision of a Portland Trails staff person relative to my ability to participate. I assume all risks associated with volunteering including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other volunteers/participants, the effects of weather including high heat or humidity; and all such risks being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your accepting my volunteer involvement, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release Portland Trails and sponsors, coordinating groups and any individuals associated with this volunteer work, their representatives, successors and assigns, and will hold them harmless from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation. I grant permission to all of the foregoing to use any photographs taken during trail work events for any legitimate purpose. I understand that I must be at least age 18 or be accompanied by a guardian in order to volunteer.
