Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance have been supporting the trail planning process by updating King County's trail map data, and temporarily numbering & signing the trails. I'm disappointed to say someone is taking down the signs almost as fast as we are putting them up.

Glad someone is finally mapping those trails Tom, we need a good map! Maybe this will help get the word out what those temporary signs are for.
