Washington Trails Association is celebrating 50 years of protecting trails.
The Washington Trails Association (WTA) turns 50 this year! We love them for maintaining the amazing trails all over our beautiful Evergreen state. Celebrate and support the WTA on Saturday, September 17th at Snoqualmie Point Park with fellow hikers for a fun day of outdoor adventures. Try out a new outdoor activity, compete in a scavenger hunt, scout out new gear, or just relax at the beer garden (21+) with friends and plan your next adventure! Stop by anytime between noon and 6 pm.
From WTA’s humble beginnings as a little newsletter to their current role as a leading voice for trails, WTA’s goal is to empower hikers. Their work drives to protect and promote trails in Washington state. This year, as the WTA acknowledge the founders, members and volunteers who have inspired and led them to this point, they will turn their sights to the future of trails.
As the state’s leading hiking resource and the nation’s largest volunteer trail maintenance community, WTA serves more than 4 million hikers each year through our bimonthly magazine, online resources, social communities and collaborative partnerships. Through grassroots advocacy, WTA focuses on trail issues, including funding, access and wilderness protection, while innovative youth and families programs educate and empower families, teachers and youth groups to discover the outdoors.
In a time when more people are looking to get outside, WTA will continue to find new and innovative ways to encourage safe and sustainable hiking and trail systems, while working to improve access to hiking opportunities for all Washingtonians.
