Garfield Ledges Lumber Haul
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.
The Greenway is building a brand-new trail to Garfield Ledges. Volunteers have been part of this effort from the trailhead to the top of the trail! For this project, volunteers will support professional trail crews by hiking supplies up the trail. These supplies will be used to construct a staircase which will make the trail and overlook site more accessible. When finished, this short trail will provide access to sweeping views of the Middle Fork Valley, all within an hour’s drive of Seattle.
This project will involve lifting and carrying large sections of lumber, alone, with packs, and with teams and straps. If you enjoy a beautiful hike, and flexing some muscles, this project is for you!
Reminder: 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!
All training provided, no experience necessary. Remember to sign the e-waiver, link in agenda e-mail, prior to the event.
