Community Involvement: Pratt Bar Trail
August 24, 2018
This summer we partnered with The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust to repair a trail and maintain the picturesque Pratt Bar day-use area, dovetailing with recent efforts to construct a 45’ wooden bridge. We volunteered to clear the tread, move gravel, remove invasive weeds, and shape the trail surface to build a gravel path to access Pratt Bar. The short trail out to the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River provides access to a broad gravel bar with soaring views of surrounding mountains and the Valley. Prior to bridge and trail improvements, visitors were forced to cautiously make their way down a short but steep slope adjacent to the road, and tip-toe across a loose collection of paving stones across a stream.
Take a look at our efforts:
