Washington Trails Association is a volunteer- driven nonprofit member- ship organization working to preserve, enhance and promote hiking oppor- tunities in Washington state through collabora- tion, education, advocacy and trail maintenance.
Washington Trails Association was founded by Louise B. Marshall (1915–2005). Ira Spring (1918–2003) was its primary supporter. Greg Ball (1944–2004) founded the volunteer trail main- tenance program. Their spirit continues today through contributions from thousands of WTA members and volunteers.
WTA has earned Charity Navigator’s highest rating three years in a row.
