We will meet at the Middle Fork Trailhead.  Please plan to arrive a few minutes early, as the stewardship activity starts promptly at 9 AM.  A  Northwest Forest Pass or the America the Beautiful Interagency Pass is required to park at the trailhead, and this location is not served by Trailhead Direct.  We will work until 3 PM.

Volunteers will meet and park at the Middle Fork trailhead: https://goo.gl/maps/VGyjGdSvq5o

There will be no cell reception at the Middle Fork Trailhead. 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 11.8 miles to the Middle Fork trailhead parking area on the right. Look for Greenway signs and staff. 

Come celebrate National Trails Day at the Middle Fork Trailhead. We will continue to gravel the Middle Fork Connector trail between the Middle Fork Trailhead and the Middle Fork Campground and Garfield Ledges trail. We will also work to improve an ADA trail from the Middle Fork Trailhead out to the picnic areas by the river and do some general trailhead cleanup to keep everything looking beautiful.

For this event, as part of ongoing work through a grant from the National Forest Foundation, volunteers will be working to create a new picnic area by the river as well as moving gravel onto the Middle Fork Connector trail. The gravel will create a more durable surface, which will increase the accessibility of the crucial trail link between the Middle Fork Trailhead, Middle Fork Campground, and Garfield Ledges Trail.

After lunch, we will have opportunities to get out onto a few nearby trails for a hike to round out our trails day celebrations.
