Help rebuild the Comet Falls Trail with WTA!

The Washington Trails Association has been hard at work this season working on trails throughout the park -- but with a special emphasis, for now, on the Comet Falls Trail, where a large section of trail fell away this spring. Volunteer crews have been building a new stretch of trail around the washout, located about a mile up from the trailhead and a quarter mile below the snowline. I went out and visited the groups working in the field recently, and took some pictures of their progress:

WTA published a report of the work on their own blog as well, which you can read here.

There's more work to be done! WTA will be on the job for at least another week before completing the project, at which which time they'll move on to other necessary work at another gorgeous location elsewhere in the park. Check out their full schedule of volunteer projects on their website!
