Horse Lake Reserve

Burts Trail meanders from the Burts’ family homestead barn (lower) at Horse Lake Reserve and connects to the lower end of Glacier View Trail. It provides unique views to the north of Burch Mountain and the open spaces of the northern portion of the Reserve.

Many dates from late April to July. 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.

Enjoy wildflower season and great views at the Horse Lake Reserve while helping to remove hazardous fencing. Work involves cutting brush that has grown through the fences, removing and rolling rusty barbed wire, and pulling out fence posts. Wear sturdy shoes, tough clothing, and leather gloves.

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 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).

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.

Join us at Horse Lake Reserve to help continue building our new trail! We are about halfway done with this 1.5 mile entirely hand-built trail. This is challenging, but rewarding and fun physical work outside.
