Burch Mountain Success!

You can make a difference and it was proven this weekend at the Burch Mountain Trail project!

56 people showed their love for trails and helped open an iconic high alpine wilderness trail. Well over 300 hours of labor was put into this trail. 46 people also generously donated money equal to $5045 to this project in the Methow Fund Save-A-Trail project which was used for materials.

The next time you ask yourself  "why doesn't the Forest Service open this or that trail" be reminded of Burch Mountain. Often trail projects takes way more time and money than you can imagine!

The Methow Trails Collaborative hopes to continue with this model of encouraging all organizations and individuals to join together to make a big difference on trails. Just a little bit of your time or money combined with all these other people makes the work happen quickly and easily!

An enormous thank you to these people for coming out Saturday, Sunday and for many of them, both days!
