This is an activity run by the Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition. Meet them behind the Darrington Ranger Station at 9am.  The crew will work on the Eightmile Creek trail (which serves 3 O'clock Rock) until mid-afternoon. Plan on being there most of the day and enjoying time giving back to a beautiful place!

We will be working on the Eightmile Creek Trail, which serves Three O'Clock Rock. This trail climbs to Squire Creek Pass, a  beautiful destination popular with day-hikers because it has wide views from expansive granite slabs that sweep up to a peak we call Chrome Dome. 

This Stewardship activity is led by crew leaders from The Access Fund. There will not be a Mountaineers representative there, however Elaine (the leader listed) will be communicating any updates or changes to people who are registered, and will send the roster to the representatives from The Access Fund. If you have any questions, please contact elainek@mountaineers.org.
