Stewardship - Church Creek–Satsop Lakes

Church Creek Trail Maintenance - This trail travels through an old-growth forest with some massive trees and lots of flourishing vegetation. Our goal is to maintain a safe trail through this wonderful representation of Pacific Northwest forest. As a crew member, you'll be using a crosscut saw to remove logs (logout) or loppers and brushing tools to remove the obstructions for safe hiking.

Meet at 7:15 at Haggen's Grocery at 1313 Cooper Point Road on the left-hand side of their large parking lot (left - as you look at the front of the store from the parking lot).  Look over near the trees.

We will be traveling to the Western trailhead, access to Satsup Lakes to cut a safe passage through the trees that have fallen on the trail (log out) and brush back (pruning) the most bothersome encroaching vegetation.  The trail work will involve hiking up the trail about 2 to 2.5 miles and up to 1,600 feet in elevation gain.  Our plan is to return to the park and ride location (Haggen Foods) by 6:00 PM.
