The Trails Plan for Early 2020 …

Skagit County Parks and Recreation hauled and spread eight (8) truck loads of crushed rock on the worst sections of the park’s service road. They bought more hand tools, serviced the power carrier, and provided the first of the trail signs we needed – so we’re all set. Thanks SCPR!

Highlighted is the Pump House Trail, which we expect to complete this Summer. Sections 1-3 have already been hand-finished, which is contouring the trail tread and applying ballast rock – as needed.

Sections 4 and 5 have been roughed-in, using a mini excavator. At the next volunteer session removing salmon berry roots will be the first task. After they are removed the final machine grading will be done – that will then make it possible for the final hand-finishing to be completed.

Rock walls will also be needed in a few areas; on sections 2, 3 and 5. The final trail capping is expected to begin in late Spring/Summer. With native plant restoration along the trail corridor, that’s planned for late Fall/early Winter.

Our next session is January 25th, with the Estep Family providing lunch. That’s starting the year off right!
