FROG HOLLER COMMUNITY OPENING! Saturday, April 1st from 10am-1pm
Frog Holler, Vashon’s newest Community Forest, is a 60-acre forest complete with multi-use trails. This new forest is part of a long term partnership effort with the Vashon Land Trust to protect more than 500-acres of forest on the south end of Vashon Island. It was acquired in December 2016 with funding from a $6 million grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology.
Frog Holler is a local island neighborhood along Wax Orchard Road known for the chorus of tree frogs in the area. The previous owners had enrolled the forest in the American Tree Farm system and allowed local Frog Holler neighbors to use the network of trails on site. The site features a five-acre pasture that has been grazed by sheep, goats and horses over the years.
The forest is located one-half mile south of Bates Road on the east side of Wax Orchard Road.
Come run, walk or ride the 2 miles of multi-use trails. Dogs must be leashed. Mountain bikers and Equestrians welcome!
Thank you to Richard & Sheila Doane and King County Parks for making this beautiful piece of land open to the whole community.
