Keep the forest clean!

Help our dedicated volunteers keep the forest clean for visitors and wildlife. If you find trash in the forest, pick it up and pack it out of the forest. There is no trash collection service in the forest, so please do not leave trash at the trailheads. Thank you for doing your part to leave no trace!
