The old Mailbox Peak trail was a daunting route. Plagued by erosion due to its extremely steep grade, hikers routinely lost track of the trail. Now, visitors to this iconic mountain east of North Bend will have a much better time. Last weekend, the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources celebrated the official opening of a new and improved Mailbox Peak trail, cutting a ribbon Saturday, Sept. 27, on National Public Lands Day.
