As of August 2nd
Right now, the trails are in pretty good shape. We have started doing maintenance in small crews, usually 2 people at a time in accordance with the County COVID-19 guidelines.
With the closure of parks, stores, etc. people are discovering that a hike in the woods is most relaxing. We’re seeing more people on the trails, but given the size of the Greenway, there are never many people in the same place at once.
The county has opened the Buck Lake Park parking lot, so you can enter the Greenway at the Buck Lake trailhead. There are more entrances (trailheads) than the one at Buck Lake. There is one at the top of Ponderosa Blvd in Shorewoods, one at the end of Spruce St. in Shorewoods, one adjacent to Twin Spits Rd. a short way from the store, one at the first turn in Buck Lake Rd. as you head up toward Buck Lake, and one off of Cora St. Take a look at our map online and you will see them.
The logging operations have ended and we are re-establishing the trail from Hansville Rd. to Hood Canal Drive. A lot of work has been done so far, such as removing all the downed trees from across the Outback portion of the trail. Posts 16, 17, and 18 have been reset. We have opened the trail from Hood Canal Drive to Hansville Rd. There are some areas that are difficult to navigate due to brush but we’re working on it, so bear with us as we get it back in shape.
Can’t remember where the trail number posts are located? Check out our map in the General Information menu item. Remember, you can always load the Maprika app on your smart phone and import the Hansville Greenway map. The app works with Android or iOS. With GPS enabled, you should be able to find your way with no problem.

We are short of able-bodied people to help with maintenance especially the work now going on to fix the trail damage, so if you’ve ever wanted to volunteer your time for a really good cause, we’d love to have you. Any time you can contribute is really appreciated! And you’ll get bragging rights for working with us! There is no “required” amount of time for volunteers to work. We are just happy to get any help we can get. Navigate to the “Contact Us” menu item and raise your hand!
