Volunteers needed for trail-building project on Chuckanut Mountain


Volunteers are wanted to help build a new 1.2-mile route in the Chuckanut Mountain trail system.

Half of the trail will go over an old road bed and the other half will go through undisturbed forest until its end near the Raptor Ridge overlook.

Set to be completed by next spring, the new route will link the Huckleberry and Raptor Ridge trails. It also will bisect what is now a loop formed by other trails.

The route will be open to mountain bikers, hikers, runners and horses.

To volunteer, call Jackie Yereance at 360-671-7764. A member of Whatcom Chapter of Backcountry Horsemen of Washington State, Yereance is coordinating the volunteers.
