This website exists to help preserve the natural state of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie valley by promoting responsible low-impact recreation and providing information on the history and the effects of human activity now and in the past.
People value what they know and enjoy, but when land is private or inaccessible, it’s largely ignored except by a hardy few which leads to apathy. Through the efforts of many individuals, groups, and agencies, the Middle Fork is now almost all accessible public land and is slowly recovering from past abuses to become a wild outdoor treasure. Places like this make the northwest special and it will take continued effort to keep it that way. Tread lightly, pick up trash, join a trail crew, leave no trace.
As of January, 2014 this site is well under way, but I have not attempted to advertise or promote it yet. If you stumble across it that’s great, but it’s still missing some basics, such as coverage for the official trails in the Middle Fork. I’m regularly adding news items, recent and historical, and will be filling out the information on the peaks, trees, rivers and trails. Check back later, please!
Finally, please consider whether you have any photos in your shoebox that might find a better home on this site to be enjoyed by others. Check out the Contributions page to see what I’m looking for.
