Thanks REI

Methow Trails is honored to have received a $5000 check from REI today to help with our work on increasing the care and access to Methow Valley outdoor recreation.  We are using this additional funding towards the work we have been doing on the Methow Valley Community Trail.

We added a new bridge this spring, added trail surfacing, and leveled out many parts of the trail.  The main goal of this work is to provide a better skiing, fat biking trail and snowshoe system in the winter but access to this trail is year-round also providing a hiking and biking trail from Winthrop's town edge to connector trails at Sun Mountain and Mazama. Thank you REI for your support!

Bridge & Trail Enhancements: June 13

We could use a hand with a bridge over troubled waters.  Ok it's not troubled waters but rather the beautiful Methow River.....

Saturday, June 13 from 8am to 12noon our Trails Manager Jon Albright is enhancing the o-so-popular Tawlks-Foster Suspension Bridge by shoring up the railings.  Jon could really use some assistance with this project and with some trail surfacing work on both ends of the bridge.

If you can spare a little time for the trails, please meet Jon at the Suspension Bridge Parking Lot off Goat Creek Road at 8am. Bring along some water, snacks, gloves and sunscreen.  Tools will be provided by Methow Trails.

Give us a call at the office if you have any questions.  509-996-3287
