Upcoming WTA Trails Projects

The WTA (Washington Trails Association) will be conducting work parties throughout the summer and have party-size limits in place. If you'd like to join them in working on the trails, the following dates still have space available.

June 6-8: Help maintain the West Boundary Trail on Mount Rainier near Carbon River. The crew will help get this trail back into shape, removing downed logs and repairing any damaged tread. When the work is completed on the West Boundary Trail, we'll move on to the Mine Trail.

June 14-15 : Continued work on the West Boundary Trail and Mine Trail.

June 20-22: The crew will be working on sections of the Wonderland near Longmire in the southwest corner of the park. This project includes annual maintenance including drainage, tread repair and brushing. If/when work on the Wonderland trail is completed, we will move on to do maintenance on other trails in the Longmire area.

June 28-29: Continued work on the Wonderland Trail near Longmire.

July 4-6: Continued work in the Longmire area.

As always, volunteers for these events may camp for free in the Longmire Stewardship Campground. Please make your reservations at least one week in advance by contacting Campground Host Jim Cherry james_cherry(at) Platform tents will not be available until June 7 (see previous post if you'd like to help put up the platform tents).
