    South Fork Snoqualmie -- Phase 2 Target

    Quick update... Here's where we hope to get to this year before we get snowed out...



    That's Harris Lake at ~3750 ft.





    And that was Tor from Mountains to Sound Greenway and Kevin from Evergreen.



    That's 6 miles of new trail. When connected with Phase 1, it can be a ~16 mile out'n'back or hook up some road and it can be a ~17 mile reverse lollipop. Elevation profiles to follow.

    We currently have a big excavator working on road decommissioning and road-to-trails conversion near Harris Lake, and a mini-ex working on the new trail closer to Phase 1.

    Stay tuned for work parties early in Sept!!

    It's going to be byoooootiful!!

    This is just so cool! Combined with Phase 1/Hansen Ridge this will be a legit place to ride. Good stuff!

    I will help dig as well, but only if I get to ride with Kevin in his jeep at 60Mph up the FR.

    That lake looks like good swimming!
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    Harris Lake

    Well, you CAN swim in it, but it is shallow and swampy and stinky bubbles come to the surface when you disturb the bottom. That doesn't stop me when the temp. hits 80 though.
    Visited there earlier this month for the first time in at least a dozen years, place has not changed much other than the VERY overgrown road. Picked up all the spent shells and broken glass and fished all but one of the cans out of the lake. The last one I couldn't reach because I forgot my swim goggles. I'm much more of a hiker than a biker, but perhaps after the road is cleared I will put some air in the tires and come back for that last can. Have fun, y'all!

    Awesome, Trashpicker! When we got there last week it seemed like nobody had been there for years. No signs of trash at all. Thanks a ton!

    Wade Holden and Friends of the Trail have been doing awesome work for many, many years picking up trash and dumped cars in our forests. The amount of crap he/they have cleaned up is amazing. Much appreciated!!!

    Just a reminder to all bikers that when you see garbage or litter on the trail, pick it up and pack it out. We've got a good reputation of leaving a place cleaner than when we found it, let's keep it that way. Nothing bugs me more than trash in the forest.

    Thanks for all the appreciation, I seldom know whether or not my work gets noticed!
    There was a fair amount of trash from the days when anyone could drive to the lake,
    though I have seen far worse.

    Another lake nearby

    Here is a hiker challenge for you, if you want to stash the bikes and take a side trip through the woods there is another even smaller lake not far from Harris lake.
    See if you can find it!
