Fishtrap Lake Loop Trail Closer to Completion

After two seasons of work, including help from volunteer crews from Washington Trails Association, Backcountry Horseman of Washington, the Washington Conservation Corps, and Northwest Youth Corps, approximately 4 miles of the new Fishtrap Lake Loop west of Cheney, Wash., in the channeled scablands, is now built and open to the public. The entire segment connecting the trailhead on Fishtrap Lake Road to the Farmer’s Landing Trailhead is finished, as is part of the route to Farmer’s Landing and along the lakeshore. Work will continue this spring and summer to wrap up the loop, which will be approximately 9 miles in length when completed. The trail is open to hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking and connects to the nearby Folsom Farm and Hog Canyon trail systems, giving visitors the option of even longer routes.
