WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We’re just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit run on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this website this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Of course, time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $9.

Thank you and happy hiking!

This quiet, little-used trail wanders through a lowland forest and up the south side of Squak Mountain along Bullitt Creek. At the top of the mountain, join the network of trails that lead to a beautiful view of Mount Rainier and the historical remnant of the Bullitt family home.

Wildlife abounds in the form of birds, and great slugs and other small animals. Various wildflowers and ferns can be found along the trail.
