This property was purchased in 2000 and received it's name in 2002. Phase I construction was completed in September 2011 and included the 10-stall lower parking lot, restrooms and over 2 miles of trails. Phase II includes an upper parking lot and an additional 1 mile of trail connecting this parking lot to the existing trail system. The majority of the trails were build by volunteers under the supervision and support of the Washington Trails Association. During Phase I alone, volunteers contributed over 6,500 hours over 46 work parties to build trails, puncheons, turnpikes and enhanced wetland and stream corridors.
