Newell Creek Canyon

Newell Creek Canyon is 233 acres of protected natural area in Oregon City and Clackamas County along Hwy 213. GreenWorks was hired by Metro to refine the design, document, and permit a day use area and multi-use trail system within the canyon. To do this, we worked with an expert team that included Hart Crowser Geotechnical Engineers to assess requirements for improvements within the Geologic Hazard Overlay zone, Cascade Environmental to mitigate impacts in the Natural Resource Overlay District and vegetated corridors of wetlands and streams, KPFF for structural and civil engineering, and Sentiaros for mountain bike access considerations.
