10 AM Saturday July 26th, 2008, we met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park to set up for the Ahtanum ORV Trails Clean-up we hosted with cooperation from the DNR. We had a big turn out. There were a lot of Eastern Washington Off Road and All Wheelers Off Road Club, some members of PNW4WDA, Lower Valley Canyon Crawlers, Jeeping Nomads, Peak Putters, Ridgerunners, Tuff Enuf Cascade Crawlers, Outlaws, Washington ATV Association and some other caring people. There were 58 volunteers total on the ORV Trails sign-in list.

The Ski Benders also had a clean-up the same day as we did. They took the North Fork Road to clean-up along with the Big Bowl. I am not sure what other Snowmobile areas they worked in.

My group (Ceg, 99, Monster, Bubz, Doc, Odo, Soggymountain and Mrs. Soggymountain) cleaned up the Whites Ridge trails. The first trail we ran was the Whites Ridge Loop trail starting at the bottom off the Mid Fork. We found a tire on Whites Ridge Loop Trail. We turned up the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail and ran up to Norm Check Point for lunch. After lunch we ran Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail to the end to start that trails clean-up for the top down. One section of the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail didn’t have much to pick up since the loggers widened the trail burying what could have been there. Another trail turned into a Hi-way. We ran Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail back down to Whites Ridge Loop, McLaine Canyon Road and on to the Ahtanum Mid Fork back down.

Back at base camp people started coming in with a lot of trash. We loaded up two trucks and took the trash to the dumpster.

We had a big Potluck BBQ after everyone was back at camp.

It was great to have so many caring people come out. Thank you to all that came to help and support this Ahtanum State Forest trails project.
