#comcastcaresday, Come One! Come All!!
As a volunteer force without compare, we will be conquering miles of trail. The Parks Department is completing repair/replacement of the bridges along the trail, which gives us the go-ahead to repair the trail itself.
While the main highways have been restored for some time, the Trail has not. What we do will open the way for visitors, and restore another piece of normalcy to the community by opening up this wonderful trail.
To register to volunteer or learn more about the work-party project see:
Oso Whitehorse Trail.

Sloan Creek Road, the road that goes to Lost Creek Ridge, Sloan Peak Climbing Route, North Fork Sauk and Bald Eagle Trails has storm damage and can only handle high clearance vehicles. There is slumping of about 5 inches, (road dropping down) at .7 miles on the shoulder and slide materials across the road at 1.7 miles making this area very rough crossing.
The North Fork Sauk Falls Trail is before you encounter this damage.

Help save our North Mountain Fire Lookout! Friends of North Mountain have been working very hard to restore the North Mountain Lookout and preserve this very important part of American heritage. Once this lookout is restored it will be offered as an overnight rental with it panoramic views, evening sunsets and sipping a hot cup of coffee as you watch the sunrise.
See the video & how you can donate & be part of the dream!
Glad to say that the Suiattle River Road, FSR #26, is cleared from the slide and is now reopened, all the Suiattle area trails are accessible! A reminder that the Mountain Loop Highway is still gated for winter.
