National Trails Day: Celebrating Collaboration in the Middle Fork Valley
Come celebrate the Middle Fork Valley! This National Trails Day, we have a lot to be proud of – the collaboration between the Forest Service, the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, our partners (including the Backcountry Horseman of Washington) and our committed volunteers. These people and organizations are dedicated to keeping places like the Middle Fork – complete with iconic bridges, well-loved trails, old growth forests and meandering rivers – a place that continues to inspire awe. What better way to celebrate them, and their accomplishments, by continuing to work together this National Trails Day.
Please join us on June 1st to celebrate the projects that have been completed, and to kick off the next summer of trail improvements. Work will include hauling building materials, enhancing trail surfaces, improving drainage, and building rock structures on the future Garfield Ledges Trail. Be sure to come out to learn trail skills, celebrate these partnerships, and continue being a steward of this very special place.
All training provided, no experience necessary. Remember to sign the e-waiver, link in agenda e-mail, prior to the event. There is no cell phone reception at the Middle Fork Trailhead.
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.
