Plan on meeting at the Blue Lake Trail Head at 9am. Bring a Northwest Forest or Interagency pass or pay $5 for trailhead parking. The workday will last until approximately 3:00pm.

You should be prepared for at least 1.5 miles of hiking to the project sites. Once there, the group will likely be separated into smaller working groups and focus on a host of projects that may include: rock carries, stone step and retaining wall construction, and trail restoration/closures.

This stewardship day is a part of a multi-year project led by the Access Fund and US Forest Service to restore and create the trails that lead to the bases of some of Washington state's most popular rock climbs, including Liberty Bell and South Early Winters Spire.
