WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We’re just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit run on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this website this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Of course, time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $9.

Take some easy to moderate trails along soft terrain in a forested area home to some wildlife, mostly birds. The trails weave in and out of each other, dividing into a maze of smaller trails as they lead to creeks.

Near the City of Battle Ground, this natural area includes 81 acres of mature
forest and open meadow. Two creeks -- Salmon and Morgan -- flow through the property, and the forests include western redcedar, hemlock and fir.

You'll be able to hike roughly one-and-a-half miles of
trails as you explore the area's diverse greenery, understory, wetlands and creeks, as well as ample opportunities to see wildlife.

The trails here can be muddy, so bring boots you don't mind getting a little wet.
