Mineral Creek Trail Reroute

This project seeks to reroute a section of the Mineral Creek Trail, which was decommissioned along with its associated trailhead in June 2023 to accommodate river side-channel and floodplain restoration projects on the Kachess River.


Applicant: Mountains to Sound Greenway
Project Location: Okanogan Wenatchee National Forest, Washington
Amount Awarded: $63,212.00

The Mineral Creek Trail connects the Pacific Crest Trail to developed camping facilities at Cooper Lake and is easily accessible via a paved road. The Greenway Trust proposes to begin a suite of work in June 2024, including:

  • Flagging a new half-mile trail route to reduce erosion into the restored riparian area -Adding drainage features, reducing maintenance needs
  • Determining which stretches of trail cross granite bedrock, and which can be hand-built -Contracting with equipment operators for necessary excavation
  • Using hand tools to build trails in softer soils
  • Connecting the trail to a new 8-10 vehicle trailhead facility, constructed separately using funds from the State of Washington.

We anticipate completing this work by November 2024.
