When You Walk Our Trails

Consider carrying a litter bag or clippers, picking up litter or trimming intrusive plants as you go. Many trail users do this from time to time, and it's a great help.  For major problems - a fallen tree or a washout - call the City of Newcastle at 425-649-4444.  Better yet, file a written report with the City using the online application YourGov or its cellphone app, as described below.

Report Trail Issues Using YourGov

Trail or non-trail maintenance issues ranging from downed trees to vandalism can be reported to the City using the application YourGov from your desktop or laptop computer.  You can also install the YourGov app on your Android or iPhone to report on the go (and include a photo of the problem).  YourGov will use the location of your device, or a location you enter on your computer, to put a point on a map showing the location of your issue and nearby issues, with their descriptions.

    Note: As indicated on the Newcastle website, the YourGov system is not designed for reporting all types of incidents.  For emergencies, use 911.  Problems with traffic, abandoned vehicles, and crime reports should be given to the Newcastle Police.  Report animal concerns to Regional Animal Services of King County.
