National Trails Day! Puget Sound, I-90 corridor. This new trail just weathered its first winter. Now WTA returns to the trail to give attention to areas that need it most. Tasks include getting rid of mud holes, fixing drainage, and repairing rock walls to make sure this trail performs like new.
Hiking the Pratt River Trail currently requires a frequently-dangerous ford of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie. An old trail leading from the Middle Fork Trail to the Pratt--eliminating the ford--is so heavily brushed in as to be unhikeable. Much of the trail can still be found. But for the majority of hikers, reaching the Pratt River Trail is out of the question, due to the sheer challenge of brush-hiking and navigation. The Snoqualmie Ranger District has finally received approval to rebuild and partially relocate the Lower Pratt River Trail, which leads from the Middle Fork Trail to the confluence of the Pratt and the Middle Fork, where the main Pratt River Trail connects.
