The TAC monthly trail work party is coming up this Saturday, Oct 27th. We are meeting at the Barn on the new Hilltop property to work on the final stages of the new Hilltop trail. Work is progressing nicely and we have to brush through the last section to connect the meadow to the Grand Forest East.
You can access the barn from the south Grand Forest East parking area. There will be signs from the parking area on Mandus Olson leading you to the barn. Walk across the meadow and we will be working on the East side of the meadow.
The work party will be from 10 am to 1 pm. Please bring a snack, gloves, and your favorite trail tool. If you have questions contact Erik Sherwin at 206-245-7382.

Please join us in continuing work on the Hilltop trail connection.

We need to upgrade portions of the upper loop to meet the multi-use standard of the new trail connection.
Bring your favorite snack, gloves, and favorite trail tool to the barn at Hilltop. Signs will be in place to get you from the parking area at the end of Mandus Olson off of New Brooklyn where the Grand Forest East parking area is.
