7:45 AM at Mud Bay Park and Ride
Head to the southern Olympics and assist the Olympia Branch Trail Crew with maintenance of the Wynoochee Lake Shore Trail – a 16-mile loop trail skirts the Wynoochee Lake and travels two miles up the Wynoochee River, affording views of waterfalls and ancient forests. This is a beautiful trail, adopted by the Olympia Branch at the request of the US Forest Service to help keep the trail as a multi-use trail in the southern portion of the Forest. Work will include trail clearing, removing fallen trees, brushing and some tread repair to areas damaged by erosion. Backcountry trail maintenance requires your 10 essentials, water, lunch, work boots (hiking boots are great) and work gloves (leather or other durable material).

Meet at Mud Bay Park & Ride off State Route 101 at 7:45 a.m. Carpool to Wynoochee Lake. The Branch can supply most hand tools for brushing, log-outs (deadfall removal) and tread repair. To help, you can bring your tools for working in and on the trail surface. Return around 5:30 p.m.

No pets please.
