Trail work opportunity - Seattle area

For any runners who are still looking for trail work see the details below for a cool opportunity to hike out some gear from a backcountry trail restoration project on Saturday, Aug 15 near Skykomish, WA.

Volunteers needed to assist in carrying gear OUT on Saturday, August 15th. The crew will have finished and hiked out on the 13th, so we will need volunteers to hike in with an empty pack and hike out with a heavy pack (possibly up to 50lbs, but more likely less (30-40lb) with more volunteers!).

The location is Snoqualmie Lake. It is a 14 mile roundtrip hike, with 2,200 feet of elevation gain. Drive time is about 2 hours one way (trailhead is off Hwy 2, 3 miles before the town of Skykomish). Randi Shaw, an EarthCorps project manager, will be going out with the group that day. If you are interested (or know of people who may be interested), or have questions regarding this fabulous opportunity to volunteer for EarthCorps, please contact me by email or phone. See my contact info below. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!
