Naturalist Trip - Pratt River Connector & CCC Trails

Join us for a low elevation hike to explore mosses, lichens, liverworts and more! The Pratt River Trail is a wonderful place, even if the weather is drippy. We will have great views of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie in a few places. We will take our time and cover about 6 miles with minimal elevation gain.

This trail gives us a lot to look at – especially if we look close! To get an even closer look you can use a loupe, camera, or your phone.  If you have taken the Moss and Lichen course, bring your book to help identify what we see.  If you haven’t don’t worry, we will have things to share and maybe this exploration will spur you to sign up for the February class. 

Fingers crossed for dry weather but it’s a beautiful hike even in the rain.

An email will be sent out a few days before the trip with further instructions or updates.
