Came across this article on the DNR web site regarding Sadie Creek, posted 02/25/09.

It's some good PR. Great job!

Any other good PR stuff out there?

The Sadie Creek Four-wheel Drive Trail reopens with help from dedicated volunteer groups and individuals

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 24, 2009

The Sadie Creek Four-wheel Drive Trail reopens with help from dedicated volunteer groups and individuals

OLYMPIA – With the help of many volunteers, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has reopened the popular Sadie Creek Trail, on the Olympic Peninsula, about 20 miles west of Port Angeles.

In 2008, the trail was closed to allow for timber harvest operations. Now that the sale has been completed, a group of four-wheel drive supporters met with DNR staff regarding work needed on the Sadie Creek four-wheel drive trail. Attending were members of the Pacific Northwest Four-wheel Drive Association (PNW4WDA), Just Jeep Junkies, The Mudtoys, and the Olympic Trailblazers, as well as individual recreationists.

Volunteers will be adding culverts at road/trail intersections, installing yellow diamond trail route markers, and doing minor clean-up. DNR will schedule work parties in early spring.

Prior to the timber sale, DNR staff worked with volunteers from the Pacific Northwest Four-wheel Drive Association (PNW4WDA) and Just Jeep Junkies to ensure that the four wheel drive trail remained as close as possible to its original condition. These volunteers assisted DNR in the field by marking trees to be left to provide a visual reference for the trail after the logging was complete, and relocating a section of trail slated to be displaced due to road construction.

The volunteers also worked with DNR to design and install a “qualifier” at a new gate required as part of the timber sale. The Sadie Creek Trail is designed as a slow technical trail for short wheel base vehicles, and the qualifier is intended to limit the size of vehicle used there.

DNR urges riders to be familiar with the “PN4WDA Code” at http://www.pnw4wda.org/about_us/index.htm and the “Tread Lightly” information at http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/boone/recreation/tread.shtml before using this trail.

Caring for your natural resources now. . .and forever
Washington’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) manages 2.9 million acres of state-owned forests, range, agricultural lands, and commercial properties, earning income to support schools, universities and other state institutions, as well as local services in many counties. DNR’s management of these lands sustains habitat for native plant and animal species, protects important sources of clean water, and offers public recreation and educational opportunities statewide.
