Guemes Mountain Trail Building #2

Sep 2010 19

8:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Guemes Island

Skagit Land Trust is pleased to announce that work is commencing on the new trail up Guemes Mountain.   This new, mile-long trail will provide foot access to an incredible viewpoint of the San Juan Islands, Mt. Baker, the North Cascades and the Skagit flats.  The trail will travel through mature forest before ending on the broad mountain top amidst a beautiful prairie / bald with several viewing areas.   Help build what will become a much-loved trail!

The Washington Trails Association (WTA) is taking the lead in constructing the mile-long trail to the scenic vista at the top of the mountain and all volunteer efforts will be organized through WTA.  There are a limited number of spots to volunteer, so sign-up through WTA's web page:

There will be many trail building events on Guemes Mountain during the remainder of 2010 and into the first half of 2011, so there will be many opportunities to join in the fun.
