TRAILS -- Volunteers have a choice this weekend of National Trails Day projects ranging from the scablands near Fishtrap lake to alpine lakes near Lookout Pass.

The Spokane Mountaineers already have crews signed up for both venues.

Click here for details on signing up to help the U.S. Bureau of Land Management on Saturday make way for a new loop trail at Fishtrap Lake west of Spokane off Interstate 90.

To sign up for the Mountaineers' work party headed on Sunday to Stevens Lakes, contact volunteer coordinator Lynn Smith, e-mail kslynndeb@hotmail.com.

The group plans selected work on the way to Stevens Lake and then brushing out the user trail from there to Upper Stevens Lake. The lakes fill glacier-carved basins near the Idaho/Montana border. At about 5 miles round trip and quick access off I-90, they are among the most popular alpine lake destinations in the region.
