Mosquito Cove Trail – Work will be in progress on the trail at times in September. The trail will remain open. The partnership project to repair the trail is being funded by a Recreation Trails grant received by STW.
Mt. Edgecumbe Guided Off-Island Hike – August 13, 2016: Last Off-Island Hike of the Season was cancelled by Allen Marine due to sea conditions.
Unfortunately it is too late in the season to reschedule this hike. We hope to see you next year. Everyone who signed up for this hike will receive an email concerning refunds this week. If you have not received an email by August 19th , please contact us at 907-747-7244.
We have two more events scheduled:
Alder Pulling Event: Baby alders are invading the shoulder of Sawmill Creek Road along the bike path between the Whale Park and Paxton Industrial Park. Sitka Trail Works board members are hosting a trail maintenance day Saturday, September 17th at 9 AM. The effort will focus on pulling young alders on the ocean-side of the Sawmill Creek separated multiuse path, past Whale Park, to keep the view open. Participants are asked to bring work gloves and five gallon buckets. The group will meet at the parking area on the uphill side of the road just beyond Whale Park at 9 AM.
For further information please call the Trail Works office at 747-7244.
Annual Meeting: STW will hold our Annual Meeting for members (the public is also invited) on October 26th at the Sitka Science Center. Matt Goff is scheduled to give a presentation on Sitka natural history. Stay tuned for more details.
