HUGE Shout out to Washington Trails Association

Last year we asked people to consider giving to the Washington Trails Association(WTA) in their quest to obtain a matching grant up to $10,000 earmarked for Methow Valley Trails. (see the Oct. 17, 2009 post) WTA made that goal and just sent an update on the Methow Valley trail work they have completed this summer with those donations. Check out these incredible accomplishments:
4,252 hours of volunteer service on Methow Valley Trails!
60 hours of work per volunteer!
Replaced a single stringer foot-log bridge on the Lone Fir Trail
Worked on a dozen Methow Valley trails including the popular Maple Pass loop
Cleared fallen logs on the west end of the Pasayten Wilderness
Cleared blowdowns from the Twisp Pass, Scatter Creek and Copper Pass trails
Installed a new foot-log bridge across Wolf Creek
WTA crews are currently working on a new bridge across Robinson Creek
From one non-profit trail association to another we salute you WTA! Thanks for helping to keep outdoor recreation accessible and incredible!
