HEART OF THE PARK PARTY

HILLCREST PARK LODGE - 1717 S 13TH ST, MT VERNON, WA

This year on National Trails Day we will celebrate the past seven years of volunteer work in Little Mountain Park. Since the work of Mount Vernon Trail Builders began they’ve tripled the park’s trail mileage and improved trails, while volunteering over 13,000 hours.

The growing number of park users has created a need for more parking and restrooms. That led to the plan for the Heart of the Park (HOP) Public Trails Facility. Beyond additional parking and restrooms, our vision also includes a bicycle skills park. Generous donors, and the success of the 2014 HOP Fundraiser, have already provided the resources to design, purchase materials and rent equipment for the “trail portion” of the project.

Since the last fundraiser two major trails, the HOP Connector Trail and Rooty have been completed, creating the linkage between the Trails Facility site to the rest of the Little Mountain trail system. Our plan is to begin work on flow lines and technical trail features of the Bicycle Skills Park next.

The 2016 Heart of the Park Party is our opportunity to raise awareness for the HOP Public Trails facility project and reach out to potential supporters; donors and volunteers.
