Renovation of North Creek Park boardwalk nearly complete
An incredible -mile walking adventure, the boardwalk at North Creek Park is getting a lot safer due to renovation of more than 150 sections of floating trail. Sections of the boardwalk have been sinking during the past several years, leaving visitors with wet, cold feet and an experience maybe a little too adventurous.


The trail has been closed for public use and will reopen in early April when the boardwalk will once again provide a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich diversity of a wetland environment, including seeing and hearing hundreds of birds and wildlife who call this wetland home. Read rest of story at

Lord Hill Trail Runners4th Dimension trail ride on Lord Hill a big success

About 500 participants competed in 4th Dimension's 8th Annual Lord Hill Run on Feb. 26.


The weather started off chilly, then it hailed and rained right before the 50k/20 milers started, but warmed up nicely shortly after with sun the rest of the day. Talk about a big sigh of relief!
Runners who ran Lord Hill were in for a special treat when famous adventure photographer Glenn Tachiyama caught them in action going up Ole Lord Hill (check out Glenn's pictures here).
