Help improve trails on Squak and Tiger mountains tomorrow
June 5, 2009
NEW — 5 p.m. June 5, 2009
Pitch in with trail maintenance tomorrow on Squak and Tiger mountains as part of the National Trails Day Celebration.
Mountains to Sound Greenway needs volunteers for trail maintenance on the mountains from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. The trail maintenance at Tiger Mountain will be for volunteers aged 14-18. Sign up here.
As part of the National Trails Day Celebration, state Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark and Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust President Bill Chapman will also open the Little Si trailhead near North Bend. The event is at 9 a.m. tomorrow in the Little Si parking lot next to the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River.
State Department of Natural Resources and King County Department of Transportation crews built a second parking lot to accommodate heavy use on the trail, which is popular with hikers and rock climbers. The natural resources department and the Greenway Trust coordinated Conservation Corps crews and volunteers to build a new trail to connect the two parking lots, resurface the Little Si Trail and build retaining walls, steps, drainage and a rock turnpike to prevent erosion.
Grants and DNR funds paid for the trail and parking improvements.
