Hi Folks,

We are happy to announce that the Leber Lane Trailhead is now open. Thanks in part to positive publicity from publications such as Urban Trails Kitsap (Craig Romano’s excellent book) and in social media, more and more people are visiting the tree farm each year. This has made parking along the side of Leber Lane increasingly difficult, particularly on weekends. The new parking area – large enough to accommodate 20+ vehicles and 4 horse trailers - has been built entirely by volunteers, with resources donated by the tree farm and numerous other local organizations and businesses. No public money was used.

 Please help us maintain the parking area and trailhead by taking your own garbage with you and reporting any vandalism or suspicious activity to Mark Mauren (253) 307-5900

Kitsap Waterfall Survey at Ueland Tree Farm

Micah Kipple has spent the last couple of years surveying all the waterfalls in Kitsap County.  Recently Micah presented Ueland Tree Farm with a report that describes the waterfalls that he inventoried on the property.  You can find more information on his blog at:

Below is a beautiful photo that Micah took at "Elegance Falls" on Dickerson Creek:

UTF applauds Micah's efforts in capturing these important geologic features!

Update
Leber Lane Trailhead

Our original plan was to construct the Leber Lane trailhead last spring but we did not receive our building permit until September 14. With winter approaching we decided it is more sensible to build the trailhead next May.

Start looking for more information on the project and how you can help next April.
