Last Saturday we celebrated American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day with work parties at Tiger Mountain State Forest, Blanchard Forest, Capitol State Forest, Elbe Hills State Forest, and BBQ Flats.
We’d like to give a big thank you to our volunteers, and volunteer partners, from around the state who braved the heat to giveback to the recreation sites they enjoy most.
In partnership with the Back Country Horsemen of Washington, Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition, Pacific Northwest Trail Association, and North Cascade Soaring Club, DNR and its volunteers helped to care for the Samish Overlook.
More than 70 volunteers turned out to donate a total of 453 hours to mowing, cutting weeds, repairing trail tread, and picking up litter.
Tiger Mountain State Forest
DNR staff, partners from the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, and about 15 volunteers joined together to clear out a drainage ditch and reinforce part of the Tiger Mountain Trail.
DNR staff and volunteers completed Elk Fence at BBQ Flats, a popular horseback riding area near Yakima, in preparation for its opening this summer.
