Fight the December doldrums and get outside with our volunteer crews on one of these trails, from Poo-Poo Point to Beacon Rock State Park, where we could really use some your help.

This month WTA is working in several locations that need some special attention, and we'd love to have your help! Join us for a day full of safety, fun, and work, and make your mark on the trails you love.

No experience is needed to join a work party, and everyone is welcome. We'll teach you what you need to know and find the right job for you. For more information on what to expect when you join us on trail, check out our FAQ page.

Can't get outside this December? You can help fuel WTA's work on trail with a special, year-end gift.

Southwest Washington - Beacon Rock State Park

WTA volunteers competed the Bridge Trail at Beacon Rock in 2012, and now thanks to use from enthusiastic hikers, its time to head back for some annual maintenance. We'll clear out drainages, touch up the tread, make sure culverts are clear and get it ready for winter storms and spring run-off.

Join us on from the Tradition Lake trailhead as we work on the Poo Poo Point and Section Line trails. These are some of the highest use trails in the Seattle area, since the mountain is open to hikers, horses, dogs, and mountain bikes. Our work is constantly needed in order to keep the trails in good shape year round. These work parties will focus on tread repair, drainage work, culvert installation and any other jobs needed to keep the trail in good shape through the winter.

Join us before or after the holidays. This is a great way to introduce your out-of-town relatives to Washington's resources.

Help WTA build a brand new trail! Thanks to a major land purchase on the west side of Squak Mountain, King County has helped preserve more forest acreage from logging and development. We're building a trail system to connect the new property to the existing trail system on Squak Mountain.

Come join us before or after the holidays. This is a great way to introduce your out-of-town relatives to Washington's resources.
