Trail Maintenance at Little Si Trail

Saturday, February 10, 2018, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Description

Little Si is the small peak southwest of Mt. Si. This is a relatively new trail built in 1985 that was all built by muscle, no machines. Little Si is not only a popular destination for hikers but for rock climbers as well. It offers great views of North Bend and the surrounding peaks. Due to the high numbers of hikers that use this trail annually, attention is needed to maintain this trail. Over the past three years, volunteers have contributed over 5,000 hours in bringing this trail up to more sustainable standards, including building rock turnpikes and steps, repairing drainage, and replacing signs.

 

Project Difficulty:  Moderate to Strenuous

Age Restriction: Ages 14 and up.

What to Bring:

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:

  • Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
  • Sturdy, close-toed shoes (absolutely no sandals)
  • Gloves

In addition, we recommend that participants bring:

  • Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
  • Rain gear
  • Big sack lunch
  • Water for the day (3 liters minimum)
  • Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc.

Driving Directions:

We will park in the Little Si Overflow Parking Lot: https://goo.gl/maps/KHkJ6WpiYEE2.

From Seattle, take I-90 eastbound. Take exit 32 for 436th Ave SE and turn left onto 436th Ave SE. In a half mile, turn left onto SE North Bend Way. Take your first right onto SE Mt Si Rd. In about a half mile turn left onto 434th Ave SE, the Little Si Overflow Parking Lot will be on your left.
