Join our next hike:
Little Cranberry Lake Loop - For all ages
Saturday, May 21st
10am until noon
Little Cranberry is our only lake with a near shore trail all the way around it. The trail is just under two miles long, and can be rough in places. It provides constant lake views in this wildlife rich area. Rocky meadows, bog islands, and deep forest converge in this basin to create habitat for hundreds of native plants and animals. Will we see river otter? Raven? Red-legged frog? Banana slug sightings guaranteed. Meet at the Little Cranberry Lake parking lot on the North end of the lake. (Take Georgia south off of Oakes Ave.- 3 blocks up take a right on Little Cranberry road and follow gravel to parking lot.)

About the Friends
The Friends of the Forest is a non-profit citizens organization dedicated to the preservation of the ACFL through education, outreach, and stewardship. We first formed in 1986 to "preserve, protect, and enjoy" our community forest. Our group was instrumental in the successful effort to halt revenue logging in the ACFL, and essential to the creation and promotion of a system to provide long term legal preservation of the forest. We welcome all who share in our mission.
The ACFL: We've protected it now let's take care of it!
