The Coal Creek YMCA will host a family trail walk along the rebuilt Coal Creek Trail from 10 a.m. – noon Saturday.

Walkers will congregate at the trailhead in the YMCA parking lot before taking to the 1.5-mile trail to the Red Town Trailhead.

YMCA members and nonmembers are invited, as are singles and families.

Much of the trail follows the route of the historic Seattle and Walla Walla railroad, and a Newcastle Trails volunteer will point out waterfalls, historic sites and entrances to mine shafts along the way. The trail also passes through the site of old Newcastle, which was a mining town in the late 1800s.

The YMCA will provide free food and drinks at the end of the walk, including a free shuttle back to the YMCA.

The trail includes stairs and bridges and is not suitable for wheelchairs of strollers.
