Loading Events

The English Point National Recreation Trail is a lower-elevation trail system that includes easy loops through forest terrain on the west side of Hayden Lake. This is a great opportunity to come out early in the hiking season and learn about or polish up trail maintenance skills. This popular area is heavily used by day hikers, dog walkers, and families, and has been an annual ITA project for many years. This 6-mile trail system always needs tread work, help cleaning water bars, bridge clearing, and brush removal.

More info at All Trails for the two loops: Red and Yellow.
