The Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Valley is a treasure for anyone living in or visiting the greater Seattle area. A person seeking a day of adventure could leave downtown Seattle and, in less than an hour’s time, reach the gateway to pristine Cascades wilderness in the Middle Fork Valley. From there, that person could set out on any of dozens of trails leading to mountain peaks, hidden lakes, or old-growth forests. The Mine Creek Day Use Area, managed by Washington State's Department of Natural Resources, features low-impact hiking trails, picnicking opportunities, and access to the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River.
Volunteers will contribute their efforts to restore natural areas along the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River by planting and transplanting native trees, ferns, and shrubs. This is a peaceful place to enjoy river access and views of many peaks lining the Middle Fork Valley.
