Historic Canals

FBM encourages you to join FBM so that the excellent life enjoyed by everyone utilizing Banner Mountain can not only continue but be improved in the future

In early 2016 Save Our Historic Canals (SOHC) dissolved and many of SOHC’s activities were assumed by the Friends of Banner Mountain (FBM). Important information about the Cascade Canal and Trail, interesting information about the wildlife and plants on Banner Mountain and other important news, e.g., water flow and NID Canal work will be available on FBM’s free Email Service. This will include reports on bear, bobcat and mountain lion sightings as well as short interesting articles on wildlife biology and behavior.

FBM is working to restore public access to the Cascade Canal trail with a legal challenge to the gate that was placed at the Gracie Road trailhead. For more information about FBM efforts on this issue please see the position paper.
