Southwest Washington - Battle Ground Lake State Park 1/2 day
Join WTA and spend just half a day of giving back to trails at a beautiful camping park near a lake in the Cascade foothills. We'll be helping reroute the popular lower lake trail to slightly higher ground, and brushing where needed. It's a one-mile hike to the project area on flat ground. The shortened time of the work party allows both the young and the young at heart to dedicate a few hours of time to trails before exploring the park on your own!
Olympic Peninsula - South Fork Skokomish
The Skokomish River has a bad habit of changing course, taking sections of trail with it. Efforts to restore or repair the trail have been ongoing, and WTA is working here doing logout, brushing, retread and a short reroute around a couple of problem areas. This is a very old trail that may have been an Native American route through the Olympic Mountains, meandering through both ancient forest and areas that have seen logging, and parallelling the South Fork of the Skokomish River. Hikers wander for miles, stopping by historic points of interest, including the old LeBar Claim, and Roosevelt Elk can be observed throughout the river basin.
Northwest Washington - Sharpe Park
Despite their relatively short length, the trails at Sharpe Park need some major repair in order to get them up to standard. Join us as we work at this unique location, home to the largest undeveloped waterfront on Fidalgo Island.
We'll be rebuilding sections of rooty and rocky trails. In addition, expect to do a bit of general maintenance on some of the park's more popular, established trails. So come for a day of trail work near Anacortes, and afterwards, explore this little-known gem on Fidalgo Island.
