Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for 11.8 miles to the Middle Fork trailhead parking area on the right. Look for Greenway signs and staff.

(NOTE:  There will be no cell reception at the Middle Fork Trailhead.) 

Join our partners at Mountains To Sound Greenway and Seattle Outdoor Adventurers Meetup to work on the Nature Trail in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley complete with moss covered forest floors and access to the Taylor River.   Volunteers will help move gravel to complete the graveled trail, which provides a hard surface and helps discourage social trail use through out the area. 

Afterwards Join us and our partners REI for food, drinks, fun, games and prizes at the Cheers for Volunteers celebration at the Middle Fork Campground!
