Give Methow Donations Support New Trail Project in Methow Valley
We are excited to share some good news today: the first project of the Methow Trails Collaborative – opening the Falls Creek/Burch Mountain FS #518 trail – was a success!
The Methow Trails Collaborative formed last year with a mission to join forces with other partners to increase efficiency in opening and maintaining trails across the Methow Valley.
In October, the Collaborative sought donations for this first “Save-A-Trail” project through Give Methow, an online crowdfunding campaign hosted by the Community Foundation of NCW.
Donations from 46 generous individuals provided over $5,000 in funding to support the project.
In addition, over 300 hours of labor was put into the trail in one weekend thanks to 56 individuals who love and care about the beautiful trails of the Methow Valley.
“This event shows the profound impact and experience you can have when our trail community converges” said Jon Albright of Methow Trails.
A list of individuals who contributed both time and money to this project can be found at here.
The Methow Trails Collaborative includes: the Methow Valley Ranger District, Methow Trails, Washington Trails Association, Evergreen Mountain Bike Association, the Methow Valley Backcountry Horsemen, Methow Snowmobile Association, Pacific Crest Trail Association, Rendezvous Huts, guides and outfitters, backcountry skiing, mountaineering, trail running, dirt biking and ATV clubs.
