Lebers Lane Trailhead

Status Report

March 17, 2015
Hi Folks,

We have been working actively with Kitsap County and others to donate an easement to the County for a non-motorized recreation trailhead and trail system on Ueland Tree Farm. The trail has been completed, and we are in the process of getting the signs installed. You may notice pink ribbon around the current trailhead. The ribbons mark the outside boundary of the proposed trailhead.  The following link takes you to the draft construction plans for the trailhead:

Trailhead Plans

We have submitted an SDAP permit to Kitsap County for construction of the trailhead and, hopefully, can start construction in June 2015. The trailhead is being constructed through private donations and initially will be maintained by Ueland Tree Farm and volunteer organizations and individuals who believe in “paying it forward.”
