Progress report




Volunteers make improvements to the Jam Trail in the Walker Valley ORV Trail System April 14, 2012. Photo: David Way/DNR
The Tooler Trail is open for use again! The snow finally receded enough, enabling volunteers from Skagit Motorcycle Club to finish hardening the upper sections of the trail with rock.



WCC crews have been working on the Jam Trail, SMC Trail, and Shortimer's Trail. Volunteers came out on April 14 to help DNR make the Jam Trail a more environmentally sustainable and user-friendly mainline trail. A special thanks to all the volunteers who continue to support the maintenance and operations of Walker Valley.



Walker Valley work parties

Walker Valley work parties take place every second Saturday of the month.Show up at 9 a.m. Work as long as you want. Bring a hard hat, gloves, lunch, and water. Meet at the Walker Valley Trailhead Information Kiosk,18652 Peter Burns Rd., Mount Vernon. Directions.



Reminder

Mike's Trail and a short section of Doug's Loop are both closed due to old, unsafe, and failing bridges. These trails are signed 'closed' and are not safe for travel. Please respect the closures and pass the information on to others.



Be kind--dispose of waste properly

We've had quite a few reports from residents living along and near the Lake Cavanaugh Road that people have been leaving plastic bags of poop along the side of the road. We know that our readers would never resort to this kind of behavior, but you can help by reporting those who are leaving these 'deposits.' Call our Northwest Region office at 360-856-3500.

Upper Mainline Trail temporarily closed
We've had to temporarily close the Upper Mainline Trail due to a washout. The trail closure was necessary to immediately address water quality in and around Walker Creek. For more information, please read our blog article. DNR has also posted images on an online photo gallery.

Due to timber activities, the Webfoot Trail has been temporarily closed

to protect public safety. Please use the I-5 trail as a connector trail between Cavanaugh Trail and SMC Trail.
