    I have never been to this place but I would like to help if I am not working. Maybe we could set up a place to meet at 8 or so and drive up together or maybe breakfast at 7 someplace and head out. just a thought.
    Thanks for the post.

    Work day for me as well. Is that the spot about a mile or so past the bridge on the left? With the small parking area and the gate to the left?

    Been doing it on my own for years at various locations...when there were more locations.
    Nice to do it with an organized group with like minded friends.
    Thanks Joe!

    This is great, Joe! I'd love to make this, but, relatives visiting from out of town on the 26th.

    This is important that we do our best to represent the firearms community on this project. As Solve says; "Mt Hood National Forest managers are seeking the assistance of interested volunteers and groups willing to lend a hand during our Earth Day weekend cleanup." If we want a say on future target shooting lands, we better get involved. What better way than to help with clean up of shooting sites.

    We, (NWFA), are the leading group that should be making a big showing to Mt Hood National Forest and Solve. We need a lot of volunteers for this project to make them sit up and take notice that we care. Time is short. Time to take action!

    Good score Joe!

    Wow, I wish I could make this one. I grew up right above this and know the area well. Still might try to find a way to get out there.

    I shared it into the group I lead in Oregon that has the most likelihood of getting on board. I'll look at it later today and see if they picked up on it.

    I am thinking it is the one over the bridge after the reservoir and 7-8 miles up the windy road. Which one of us is correct?

    I believe it is the pit near the top of the road, 7-8 miles up.

    The link has directions. Different spot than I was thinking. I was thinking it was the rock quarry above Promontory. This one is the one to the right on the other side of the Clackamas river above Lazy Bend Campground. (Bridge just before Lazy Bend Campground) I think it's just past the spot where the old ranger station use to be many years ago.
