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
