Middle Fork Trailhead Equestrian Area: National Public Lands Day
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 Middle Fork Trailhead is the primary setting-off point in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley for trail users in the equine community. For riders, this area is a gem, offering day rides and primitive overnight camping through old growth and mature second growth, by cascading waterfalls, and along wild and scenic rivers with regular views of dramatic mountain scenery. Work alongside members of this community to maintain and enhance recreational infrastructure to support safe and continued access for them and their animals. Learn from long-time riders about the importance of horse and mule support in maintaining our trails and public lands.
