MRNPA Aug. 2 Project Update

The August Mount Rainier National Park Associates trails work party will be on Saturday, August 2nd.  The project will be at Narada Falls.  The crew will be replacing two culverts just below the Narada Falls overview area.  To accomplish this, there will be 30-40 feet of turnpike which will be constructed and filled with tread material.

The Narada Falls parking lot is a busy place this time of year.  Volunteers who have spent Friday night at the Longmire VIP campground are asked to car-pool to Narada Falls.  If possible, volunteers who arrive early on Saturday morning should go to the Longmire VIP campground and join the car pools forming there.  As always, on Saturday, arrive at the Narada Falls parking lot between 8:30 and 9:00 and be ready to go to work at 9:00.

The work site is not far from parking lot so there will not be much hiking involved to get there, but bring your lunch and a raincoat anyway.

Following every August work party, MRNPA volunteers are invited to assemble in a nearby campground for some relaxed time together, a potluck dinner, and an evening spent sitting around the campfire.  Plans are still forming for this event, so please stay tuned. Additionally free camping is available the Friday night before the work party and the Saturday of the work party.

If you plan to attend the August work party, and if you plan to camp one or both nights, please respond to volunteer(at) The trail crew leader needs an estimate of the number of volunteers to expect and the number of campsites required.
