Tickle Creek Trail Project

Project Overview:  The Tickle Creek Trail is approximately 1.8 miles of wooded, scenic trail in the heart of Sandy. It follows its namesake creek from just west of Hwy 211 to 362nd just south of the Fred Meyer store paralleling Dubarko Road much of the way.  The trail is a 6 foot wide packed gravel trail along Tickle Creek.  The trail was designed by Jim Slagle a retired Forest Service trails planner that lives in Sandy.   The equipment contractor Gene Tilgner from On Call Construction excavated the tread, placed the stringers, constructed bridge approaches, hauled in the gravel, and compacted the trail with a roller.  Trail brushing, tread finish work and bridge construction was done with a combination of AmeriCorps and youth from the community.  

My Duties: Project Manager reporting to Community Services Director Nancy Enabnit who was Sandy's lead staff responsible.  I took some vacation days from work and volunteered my time.  Coordinated materials and supplies ordering and transport, equipment contractor and trail crew through City of Sandy.  Recruited volunteers.  Oversaw equipment operator and trail crew leader.
