Trail Restoration on Mailbox Peak Trail

When
Saturday, December 15 - 9am to 2pm
Event Type
Priority Areas
Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley
Location
Granite Creek Connector Trail
Description

Originally built as a logging rail road and used by the Snoqualmie Falls Lumber Company as such from the early 1900s to the 1940s, this is now a hiker-only trail that links up to the newly completed Granite Creek Trail. This connector trail is a less utilized, but equally as beautiful, hike to the Granite Lakes and greater Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Totaling 2.8 miles to the connection with the Granite Creek Trail, with low elevation gain, this adds on a bit of mileage to your day hike adventure! Volunteers can expect to give this trail some much needed love and attention, with corridor brushing, slope stabilization and drainage projects!
 

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