Nature Trails: National Public Lands Day

When
Saturday, September 28, 2019: 9am to 1pm
Event Type
Priority Areas
Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley
Location
Middle Fork Campground
Description

The Nature Trails are part of a loop trail system through second growth forest, complete with moss blanketed forest floors and access to the Taylor River. This makes it an awe inspiring place to explore with family and friends while camping at the Middle Fork Campground. Volunteers will support the Greenway Trust by moving gravel to complete the graveled trail, which provides a hardened trail surface and discourages social trail use throughout the area.

Project Difficulty
Moderate to Strenuous
Age Restriction
Ages 14 and up.
What to Bring

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)
  • Gloves

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.
Driving Directions
Volunteers will meet and park at the Middle Fork trailhead: https://goo.gl/maps/VGyjGdSvq5o From Seattle, drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road).
