Trail Work Day on the CCC Trail
Come join the Greenway Trust and the Forest Service on an awesome trail experience – learn about plant facts you never knew existed and give back to our trails at the same time!
This will occur on the CCC Trail. The CCC trail is the old CCC road, which encompasses a total of 13.5 miles running somewhat parallel to the Middle Fork Snoqualmie road. The CCC road was originally built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, a public work relief program for young, unmarried men during the Great Depression. The trail itself is broken into an upper and lower sections, and allows hike, bike, and equestrian access. The upper part of the trail runs through second growth forest, with occassional views of the nearby peaks and beautiful waterfalls.
Volunteers should expect to conduct trail maintenance activities such as maintaining tread surface, drainage, and brushing. This event will go beyond the tread as well. Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn from the immense plant knowledge of a US Forest Service botanist on a mid-event ethnobotany hike. Volunteers will learn how plant life is interconnected with humans and culture, can ask questions, and discover something new about being in a forest!
Please read the driving directions carefully, parking is limited, and we want to ensure we all know where to meet!
For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
- Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes (absolutely no sandals)
In addition, we recommend that participants bring:
- Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
- Rain gear
- Big sack lunch
- Water for the day (3 liters minimum)
- Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc.
