410

 

Come join us for a weekend 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 and 2019 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 and/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 June 6th and Sunday June 7th 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.

 

Feel free to come out for the whole weekend, or just one of the days, whatever works for you! I'll be out there from Friday morning of the 5th-Sunday afternoon the 7th and will be camping at the Ranger Creek Airport Campground, come join me! I'll be in my white Chevy Express van with an Evergreen Banner on it.

-Cothing for all weather conditions
