Work party planned on Hilltop Trail

A work party is planned for the Hilltop Trail on Saturday, and the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District is looking for help.

Park officials said the Hilltop Trail is the biggest trail project since the Forest to Sky Trail. When complete, the new trail will connect the two major portions of the Grand Forest.

The work party is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 28. Volunteers should bring their favorite trail tool, gloves and appropriate clothing (there are nettles at the site).

To get to the work location, take Mandus Olson Road from New Brooklyn Road to the head of the Grand Forest East. There will be signs from the parking area at the Grand Forest East leading to the barn at Hilltop, with additional signs pointing the way to the work area.

Erik Sherwin will be leading the work party. For more information or questions call 206-245-7382 or email
