Friends don't miss out on an opportunity to be of service along the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River.

The full day will consist of trail work and other laborious activity with the WTA. They will provide the equipment and we will provide the people. Please plan accordingly and arrive before 830 A.M. to check in with your primary leader.
Primary Leader: Andy Olson The Third 425-780-8198 Nancy Bodkin 425-446-1556
From Seattle, drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road). Turn left (north) onto 468th Street and follow it to the junction with the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road (Forest Road 56). Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for 11.8 miles to the Middle Fork trailhead parking area on the right.
The torrential downpours of late have left the CCC Road Trail in dire need of help. Join us to spruce up this well-loved Middle Fork trail in preparation for the Spring season.
About the Area
The CCC Road was built in the 1930's and used to run from the Mt Si Road to the Taylor River Bridge. In the 1960's it was abandoned when the current Middle Fork Road was built. It is currently a trail that provides great loop opportunities for users of the Middle Fork Valley.
