Wenatchee Foothills

Foothills Trails News:

RAIN means muddy trails... and roads. We're scheduled to get between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch in the next 24 hours.

Land Trust, Chelan PUD and partners hope for April 5 opening depending on conditions  

Join us on Thursday, May 2nd from 3-6 PM for trail maintenance at Horse Lake Reserve. We will tackle trail maintenance on the upper Horse Lake trails that will likely be under patches of snow or too muddy to work on during earlier volunteer trail events.

Join us on Thursday, April 25th from 3-6 PM for trail maintenance at Horse Lake Reserve to prepare for the 6th Annual Horse Lake Trail Run. We will split up into small groups to do brushing and hazard reduction along the route.

Join us on Saturday, April 6th for Sage Hills trail maintenance. We will meet at 9:00 am at the end of the pavement on Horse Lake Rd. This work will likely be light to moderate and involve hiking 2-3 miles and using hand tools such as hoes and McLeods along the way. We will be done by 1:00, and enjoy a lunch provided by CDLT.

Join us on Saturday, April 13th for the 2nd Annual SageFest - a volunteer trail event co-sponsored by Chelan-Douglas Land Trust (CDLT) and Central WA Evergreen Mountain Bike Association (EMBA).

Join us at Jacobson Preserve to perform annual trail maintenance. This work will be light to moderate and involve hiking up to 3 miles and using hand tools such as loppers, hoes and McLeods along the way.

Join us at Castle Rock to perform annual maintenance on the Castle Rock trail system, and any existing trail infrastructure (trail closure barriers, fences, rock steps). This work will be light to moderate and involve hiking up to 2 miles and using hand tools such as hoes and McLeods along the way.

Various dates in October. Controlling over 20 species of noxious weeds is one of our toughest stewardship duties. Timing of weed control treatments depends on stage of plant growth and favorable weather conditions so we keep a flexible schedule. Most fall weed control projects involve using backpack sprayers.

Volunteers will be removing old barbed wire fencing along a boundary of the Horse Lake Reserve. The fence is falling down and overgrown. Work will involve clearing vegetation and removing wire and some fence posts. Please bring leather gloves, work clothes, sturdy footwear, and a water bottle.
