National Trails Day Recap – Lake Whatcom Park

IMG_6931

National Trails Day! Volunteers from the WMBC, WTA and GBRC were motivated to get going on Stewart Mountain.

Well, it was a long time coming, but we finally put tools into the dirt on Stewart Mountain on what will become an up-route for cyclists and bi-directional trail for hikers.

This project started a couple of months ago when Eric, Arlen Bogaards (Washington Trails Association) and Reid Parker scouted and planned the route using some of the pre-existing trails by drastically taking the grade down on other sections.  The goal is to have a 7% overall grade that makes it pleasant for riders to ascend on their bikes.  The trail tread is being cut with a small mini-ex and then volunteers will do the finish work behind the machine.  Trail days will be scheduled up there over the summer!
