We welcome your membership

This year KTC turns 21…! We celebrated on October 28th starting out with a tailgate breakfast at the Lyle Trailhead. For the past 21 years, KTC has worked hard to make this once impassable and controversial Trail a beautiful recreational gem that benefits users, local businesses, Klickitat County, and the Columbia River Gorge. At the beginning, KTC did lots of physical labor just to make the Trail useable, and in the forefront of getting rid of illegal “No Trespassing” signs and other barriers to Trail use. Then we worked on trail basics like signage, outhouses, and boards over trestles. We also pushed for larger projects, such as developing the Lyle Trailhead and decking the Fisher Hill Trestle. Now we are delighted to report that the Trail is getting a great deal of use and every year is a more accepted part of the community! When we are weeding or picking up trash, folks often tell us how much they enjoy the Trail and that they use it regularly for health and exercise. We see all the uses it was intended for – hikers, bikers, and horses.
