Mountain Loop Hwy near Granite Falls. This trail needs some log-out, so come try your hand at a cross-cut saw. We'll also work on tidying up the trail by repairing any winter damage as well as cutting back brush and improving drainage.
This is the regular Thursday work party, so we will be meeting at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast at Subway, in Granite Falls. When you enter Granite Falls on 92, look for Subway on the left-hand side of the road. All volunteers are welcome join us. It is a great opportunity to meet your co-workers. Otherwise you can meet us at the trailhead at the regular time.
In the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. This surviving stretch of the old Granite Pass trail, which crossed to join the Kelcema Lake-Deer Pass trail, is a great walk through huge trees. The first mile is situated on an abandoned, extremely steep mining road. At 1.5 miles the trees thin, and the brush fills the gaps. At 2.5 miles you will find a small campsite next to Marten Creek. The old mine was across the creek, its secrets now lost to nature. At the valley head, Three Fingers Mountain can be seen standing tall above Granite Pass. Round-trip 5.0 miles, elevation gain 1400 feet.
