Expect Traffic Delays and Parking Restrictions Near the Snoqualmie Lake Trail.

North Bend, Wash. July 7, 2018 - Construction of the new Garfield Ledges Trail is currently underway and is requiring trail workers to use explosives this week starting Wednesday July 18th and continuing through Friday July 20th.

In order to maintain public safety, parking will not be allowed at the Snoqualmie Lake Trailhead (aka Garfield Ledges Trailhead) during these three days.  In order to access Snoqualmie Lake, Nipsy Lake, and Otter Falls, hikers will need to park at the Middle Fork Campground before utilizing the Middle Fork Connector Trail to access the Snoqualmie Lake Trail.

 

Traffic delays up to 45 minutes on the Middle Fork Road from the south end of the Taylor River Bridge to the Dingford Trailhead will be seen during periods of blasting.  Hiker access to the Snoqualmie Lake Trail via the Middle Fork Connector Trail will be restricted only during periods of blasting.

 

The Middle Fork Campground will remain open for the duration of the project.

 

The new Garfield Ledges Trail is slated to open by October this year.
