DRIVING DIRECTIONS

Please follow driving directions to Garfield Ledges Trailhead for parking.

From Seattle, drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road). Turn left (north) onto 468th Ave SE and follow it to the junction with the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road (Forest Road 56). Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for 12 miles (pass the Middle Fork Trailhead and cross the Taylor Bridge) to the Garfield Ledges Trailhead. Look for Greenway signs and staff.

On the second Saturdays of every month, the Greenway Trust partners with Seattle Outdoor Adventurers (SOA) and the Foothills Chapter of the Mountaineers (the Mountaineers) to complete stewardship projects. Locations vary throughout the I-90 corridor.

Volunteer work will include some much needed maintenance on the Garfield Ledges Trail. Volunteers will be clearing out drainage, repairing tread, and brushing the trail.

After registering on the Mountaineers' website for this activity, please also complete the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust Volunteer Waiver prior to attending this activity.
