410

 

Come join us for a work party off of Highway 410! 

The Highway 410 Trails are still feeling the impact of the Norse Peak Fire of 2017. Huge efforts made by the US Forest Service and volunteers from numerous organizations cleared the downed and hazardous trees from all of the trails in the summer of 2018 but there is still tons of trail tread work and repair needed to get the trails running as well as they historically have. 

Exact work plans are still TBD but we will be working on Deep Creek, Ranger Creek or Palisades. I'll be communicating with the Forest Service and going down there a couple days early to come up with a solid work plan. 

 Where to Meet:

Meet at 9am on Saturday October 5th at the Skookum Flats (South) Trailhead. This parking lot is just off of Hwy 410 on NF-7160. Look for signs on Hwy 410 for Buck Creek Campground and Ranger Creek State Airport.

We'll use this space to meet and solidify a plan. There is no cell service once you're close to this meeting point so make sure you have directions and whichever mapping program/app you use running before you get close. Cell service ends about 8 miles west of the Skookum Flats trail head.

 

What to Bring:

-Cothing for all weather conditions

-Sturdy Footwear, boots reccomended

-Work glvoes if you have them

-Backpack with water and snacks/lunch

-Your favorite Trail Tool if you have one

-Bike and riding gear if you'd like to ride after the work party (not required) 

 

What Evergreen Will Provide:

-All trail tools and equiptment

-Work Gloves

-Water and Clif Bars

 

Camping is available at the Ranger Creek Airfield. I will be camped there on Friday Night the 4th. If there are enough folks that stick around until Sunday we could do some more work or go out for a ride, or both!
