Gold Hill Chewelah - Saturday trail work party - 9AM start

Work Parties
Registration is closed

Come help develop new trails-- our plan is to have an excavator on-site April 22-26 and we're looking for volunteers to help put the finishing touches on new trail work and prepare for our Gold Hill Celebration event on May 18..

(Much of this excavator work will be focused on drainage and addressing damage to some of the existing double-track, and we hope to scratch in some single track as well while we have the machine.)

Come out and help us build (and maintain) Eastern Washington's newest biking destination.

Background on Gold Hill Community Forest - Gold Hill is a 400 acre community forest recently acquired by the Chewelah Valley Land Trust (CVLT) located just north of Chewelah (the north side of the Golf & Country Club) in Stevens County. Trails are in the early stages of development, so there will be everything from brushing, digging, raking to develop new trails to brush trimming and vegetation management on existing ones.

CVLT & Evergreen will have some tools on-site to get this job done—but if you have a favorite trail-building tool (e.g. shovel, rake, Rogue hoe, McCleod, loppers, or similar), please bring those along. Gloves, sturdy shoes/boots and safety/sun glasses strongly recommended.


  • When: Meet at 9:00 AM - stay for an hour or two--or longer if you like.
  • Where to meet: The new Chewelah Community Forest parking lot  ( https://goo.gl/maps/ZFViFhjrTeLRqFV3A) near the Chewelah golf course.
  • What you should bring: Work gloves, eye protection, sturdy footwear, and your favorite trail-building tool l if you have one (don't forget sunscreen and water!)

We look forward to seeing you!
