Trail Work on Garfield Ledges Trail
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.
When finished, the Garfield Ledges Trail will provide access to dramatic views of the glacially-carved Middle Fork Valley and beyond to Cedar Butte and Rattlesnake Ledge. Come out to see the trail and learn about the project by pitching in to help us build this trail! Volunteers will help build rock retention structures, fill in and define trail surfaces, and cut back roots in the trail surface. Note that the access trail is relatively steep, so be prepared for moderate to strenuous physical activity.
For over a decade, Mountains to Sound Greenway has worked to protect the scenic Middle Fork Valley of the Snoqualmie River. 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. Give back and join in a community of stewards committed to the continued access and maintenance of the Middle Fork Valley’s recreational infrastructure.
*PLEASE NOTE: VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS TRAIL PROJECT MUST BE 14 OR OLDER*
