Where to Meet and Parking Information
Volunteers will meet and park at the Middle Fork trailhead: https://goo.gl/maps/VGyjGdSvq5o There will be no cell reception at the Middle Fork Trailhead. If you have questions about your event, please contact Caroline Villanova at (206) 373-1600. Thank you! From Seattle, drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road). Turn left (north) onto 468th Ave SE and follow it to the junction with the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road (Forest Road 56). Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for 11.8 miles to the Middle Fork trailhead parking area on the right. Look for Greenway signs and staff.

In collaboration with the United States Forest Service, the Greenway Trust has almost completed construction of the newest day-use area in the Middle Fork Valley. Camp Brown Day-Use Area is nestled between Douglas Firs and Western Hemlocks along the Wild & Scenic River, the Middle Fork River, and will soon be home to 14 picnic areas for everyone to enjoy. Volunteers will participate in habitat restoration efforts to restore areas damaged by construction of the recreation area as well as construct the first of the many picnic tables to be implemented there.

Volunteers will meet at the Middle Fork Trailhead and be shuttled to their project site for this project.
