As of February 9th

Our trails are in pretty good shape. Forest Stewards are reporting only spotty puddles and not all that mud. This doesn’t mean the trails are all dry. It is winter, after all. Keep this in mind and dress for the weather. When you do find a problem that looks like we need to fix, don’t by shy. Contact the Greenway and let us know.

The gravel has been spread on the Alder Wetlands trail. That should keep the trail in good shape for several more years. You’ll see a small pile near the south trailhead which is being stored for use should puddles appear.

Please remember to let us know if you find a problem out there. You can email us at or contact any Greenway Association member.

We just got a batch of our new maps from the county and are trying to keep all the map holders stocked. This is an expense that the county would like to eliminate so take a map if you need it, but keep in mind that there are a couple of apps on your smart phones that will serve you quite well in the woods. Besides, they use GPS to help you find your way.

Can’t remember where the trail number posts are located? Check out our map in the Visitor Information menu item. 

Want to report stuff? Want to volunteer to help? Just e-mail us at or you can contact Art at 360-621-0931  to make your report. You can also comment on our Facebook page. Something we ask you to do when reporting: Tell us what the problem is and approximately where it is. Try to tie your description to a post number. If it is a tree across the trail, tell us approximately how large it is. If we can use a hand saw, it saves us from lugging a heavy chain saw into the woods.

We can always use more volunteers, whether you want to do physical labor or are more the casual hiker type of person. Any help is really appreciated and you’ll get bragging rights for working with us! There is no “required” amount of time for volunteers to work.  Just navigate to the “Contact Us” menu item (under “The Greenway” tab) and raise your hand!

Notice how we continually ask you to contact us and report problems or volunteer? There is a reason for this. We always need more help!
