WTA led work parties on
Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 23, 2022
In collaboration with the Washington Trails Association (WTA), help prepare the lower trail for the upcoming summer hiking season. Both work parties will meet at the pullout on Highway 14 (directions will be provided when you sign up).
July 15th work party (full day): Hike in 2-3 miles on the lower section of the trail. We will brush back vegetation that has been growing unchecked for the last few months, as well as restore a rocky talus section by shifting rocks around to make a safe path. This work party starts at 8:30 am and ends at 3:30 pm.
July 23rd work party (half day): Round trip hike is no more than 2 miles though it is steep on the way back out. The plan is to continue the work from the previous work party. That may include cutting vegetation off the trail and rearranging rocks that tend to slide across the trail to make the walking surface more safe. This work party starts at 9:00 am and ends at 1 pm.

CHC led work party, Tuesday July 12, 2022 from 9 am to noon
Help prepare for the July 15th opening of the lower section of the Cape Horn trail by brushing and clearing the trail below the east tunnel to Cape Horn road. This will be a half day work party on Tuesday, July 12, from 9 am until noon. We'll be brushing and cutting back vegetation along the sides of the trail, making it passible for hikers. More information will be provided after registration is completed.
To join us, please complete and submit the form below. Wear hiking or work boots - preferably the kind that protect your ankles. Long pants are also necessary, even in hot weather. More details about what we'll be working on, and where we'll be meeting will be emailed to you a few days before this event. If a work party is marked as "WAITLIST", we have reached the limit for this work party, but sometimes our volunteers have a change of plans. If you’d like to be on the waitlist for this day, feel free to follow the usual signup process, and we will be in touch if a spot opens up at the last minute. Thanks!
