Description

The new trail up Mailbox Peak was built by Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust and  the WA State Department of Natural Resources to create a more sustainable and usable trail up to the peak. Since the opening, more and more users are able to access the beautiful views atop the peak. Greenway Trust volunteers are needed to help maintain this trail and to gather materials that remain from the time of the trails construction.  Make sure to sign up to help out today!
