They say it takes a village to raise a child, and the same could be said for creating a trail! That’s why each year, on the first Saturday of June, communities across to country come together to celebrate National Trails Day.

Participants join together to give back to our trail systems so they can continue to carry us through the wild places we love.

This year we have five stewardship opportunities, and we’d love for you to join us. We hope to see you June 3!

Three O’Clock Rock - Eight Mile Creek Trail 

Join us for trail maintenance in a truly beautiful place. Located in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Eight Mile Creek Trail provides access to popular slab climbing at Three O'Clock Rock as well as access to beautiful Squire Creek Pass, which features stunning views of Three Fingers and Exfoliation Dome. Old growth Alaskan Yellow Cedars (up to 2,000 years old) populate the area, along with some waterfalls that trickle down the rock face. Afterwards, there’s a barbeque! This trail day event has become a tradition for The Mountaineers Everett Branch, the Washington Climbers Coalition, and the Access Fund.

Church Creek – Satsop Lakes

Another trail maintenance opportunity in another beautiful place. This trail, located in Olympic National Forest, passes through old growth forest, gorges, waterfalls, and lakes. The Olympia branch of the Mountaineers adopted the trail at the request of the U.S. Forest Service. We’re working hard to steward this incredible resource, and we’d love for you to join us.

Cheasty Greenspace 

A nature sanctuary in the heart of city, this urban forest is a unique and awesome space for all Seattleites to enjoy. Stewardship includes invasive plant removal, native tree/shrub planting, and pedestrian trail maintenance.  The Mountaineers helps support Friends of Cheasty Greenspace Mt. View in this work.
