Ready to take a hike on the ACCF site? In addition to checking out hike options and reading up on how to find your way, the below offers general information to make your trails adventure safe and successful.
1. Please, on any hike, follow posted rules; you’ll see them on the Proctor Memorial Forest Guidelines sign at the trailhead. The ACCF site is private property, and we expect our guests to treat the forest and each other with respect. In general, be safe and leave the forest in good shape so others can enjoy it too.
2. Do take a map with you, available via the map holder and here. We don’t want you to get lost! Maps are also posted at major trail intersections, with a yellow dot showing your current location. After your hike, you may keep your map or simply return it to the map holder for others to use.
3. The ACCF site has poison oak, which can cause a severe skin irritation if you are allergic; see the picture at left to identify. (“Leaflets three, let it be.”) Make sure to wear close-toed shoes to hike, and if you suspect you contacted poison oak wash the area off with rubbing alcohol or soap & water immediately upon your return.
4. We have tried to make the ACCF site as safe as can be, but accidents happen. Just in case, take a cell phone with you on your hike (coverage is generally good), and in an emergency dial 911; our address is 829 Canyonville-Riddle Road. Also, call the ACCF caretaker at 541- 839-4379 to report any issues.
