Help Build Two New Miles of Trail at Grand Ridge

This week, WTA is beginning work on a new 2-mile loop that will wind through a sweet stretch of hemlock and fir forest, and we could use your help to make it happen.

Just above the town of Issaquah, a 7-mile trail provides many local hikers and riders with regular escape from town amid 1,300 acres of wild parkland. Now, King County Parks wants to add a new little loop into the mix, and we could use your help to make it happen.

A little loop, or a longer lollipop

This week, WTA is beginning work on a new 2-mile loop that will wind through a sweet stretch of hemlock and fir forest. When complete, the loop can be hiked or biked as a short loop, or be used to extend out-and-back mileage with a lollipop on a longer trip.

WTA has been involved with developing the King County trail system at Grand Ridge since 2000, first stringing together old logging roads and user-built trails and then building new trail north for a total of seven miles of WTA-built trail.

Can you spare a day in February for Grand Ridge's new Watertower Loop?
