Blackjack Creek

The city in received assistance from National Park Service rangers who walked the trail and advised on best practices for providing the greatest public access with the least environmental impact. Humans most likely entered the Puget Sound region as the glaciers retreated around 12, to 15, years ago, according to a cultural resources report prepared during a State Environmental Policy Act review of the project. Blackjack met standard in and , but has recently begun to backslide for reasons unknown, Whitford said. Older models, dating to the s and s, are at the bottom of the heap. Port Orchard, originally called Sidney, was platted in , by Frederick Stevens. Only hand tools will be used during construction of the trail. Weaver at the public hearing said the crossing is actually a footbridge over a city water main. The town grew up around Blackjack Creek, as houses were built and businesses came and went. After three years of planning, construction on the Blackjack Creek Wilderness Trail is set to start in July or August, as long as no one objects. Erosion of the precipitous hillside during trail construction and from increased public access also concerns the tribe. About 17, years ago, the Cordilleran Ice Sheet that extended about 30 miles south of Olympia began to recede. Cedar and maple trees, devil's club, huckleberry, salmonberry, salal and skunk cabbage are just of a few of the species that grow in the ravine. Here, the sound of Bay Street traffic is muffled by dense vegetation. Grasses, thistles and Scotch broom framing the narrow path give way farther upland to ferns, Oregon grape, wild bleeding heart and other tiny woodland flowers. But the trail plan itself is careful to protect the creek and remedy some if not most of the damage done over decades. Weaver says the benefits of the trail for recreation and education outweigh the chances Blackjack Creek will be loved to death. Eagles, herons, deer and the occasional bear have been observed or are known to frequent the greenbelt. The work will be done within a window of dry weather when salmon are not active in the stream. Fecal coliform bacteria and other potentially harmful bacteria in essence hitch a ride on silt particles, Whitford said. According to Stuart Whitford, a water quality specialist with the Kitsap Public Health District, silt in the creek could potentially contribute to increase pollution. It's only in areas where no one will see them that the transient activity occurs. The creek supports chum, coho and Chinook salmon, as well as cutthroat and steelhead trout. The health district has monitored water quality in Blackjack Creek since The creek failed to meet state standards for purity, as measured by the relative absence of fecal coliform, in nine of the past 16 years. But within the deep ravine, nature found a precarious refuge. The camp, alternately called Ci? An early chum run is unique to Blackjack and Curley creeks as the only summer chum run in Central Puget Sound, Piazza said. Since then, Oleyar has noticed more evidence of a human presence, including drug paraphernalia, in the ravine. The headwaters of Blackjack Creek lie nearly 3. Dean Christofferson, who testified at the shorelines permit hearing, also is troubled by increased activity he's seen over the past two years. No lumber treated with hazardous chemicals will be used. Their suggestions included how to use existing downfall for split-log crossings of soggy areas and methods to minimize silt runoff during and after trail construction. A day appeal period follows. The closest spot is 25 feet from the water. The creek merges with Square Creek and enters an upland plateau dotted with wetlands, where it is fed by Ruby Creek and unnamed smaller streams. Weaver acknowledges that the surveyors' work might have afforded increased access to Blackjack Creek and with it, unwanted activity. Silt fencing will be installed to minimize runoff, and there will be minimal clearing of vegetation, only what's needed for the three to five foot-wide trail. The city's plans are to replace the water main and with it the bridge, but for now there is no money to take that step, Weaver said. For now, the city will repair loose boards on the bridge as part of the trail-building project. Plans for the boardwalk were modeled after the Dogfish Creek Trail in Poulsbo and Clear Creek Trail in Silverdale, both shoreline projects in sensitive areas. Jon Oleyar,a salmon biologist who surveys the creek for the tribe, recalls coming upon the trail in fall When I came across it, it was, wow, hello, red flag. The cars have become part of the hillside, and removing them would destabilize the slope. Some of the older people have hunted in Blackjack Creek," said James Weaver, development director for the city, who has taken the lead on trail planning. There is no way to avoid them," O'Sullivan said. The health district has been working with farmers and septic tank owners along the creek to identify and correct trouble spots. Treaty rights give the tribe a say in the management of Blackjack Creek, a salmon-bearing stream. The tribe also would prefer replacement of the bridge across the creek, dating to , with a new structure higher above the water. Piazza notes that the city's plans to preserve the corridor, zoned as greenbelt, date back to the Blackjack Creek Comprehensive Plan. Silt in the water damages habitat for spawning salmon, he said. Wood for the boardwalk will be cut in an outside staging area to minimize noise and debris. Tribal representatives have said they don't object to the trail, but they have concerns about how it's constructed and the potential impact of bringing more people into the ravine. The permit application then goes to the state Department of Ecology for review.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Deep in the woods, unseen, a thrush bursts into song. Tribal access to customary hunting and fishing areas was limited by the settlers' advance, the archaeological report notes. A walk along the reopened trail reveals evidence of human activity in decades past. In , the city contracted with N. The city of Port Orchard has plans for a trail that will open this urban wilderness to the public early this fall. Trail planning for this environmentally sensitive area needs to be done with care to protect the resources that the city recognized long ago," she said. Here is a chipped enamel washtub, there a rusted water heater. Non-natives first came to Puget Sound in the late s. Two crows joust above the creek, barely visible through a break in the trees. The advance of the glacier had cut deep troughs through bedrock and previous glacial deposits, setting the stage for formation of contemporary watersheds around Puget Sound. The tribe, in its comments on the project, reiterated Oleyar's concerns about clearing and dumping within the watershed. Surveyors followed a previously existing but mostly overgrown footpath. Since the surveyors' work, city officials and others have noticed an increase in littering, graffiti and transient encampments in the ravine. It's not 'we,' as in the tribe, it's 'we,' as in the public. Nearly volunteers, including Boy Scouts, high school students and local Realtors, have expressed a willingness to build and maintain the trail. On Thursday, the city held a public hearing on its application for a shoreline substantial development permit and shoreline conditional-use permit, needed because parts of the trail are inside the city's foot shoreline buffer. The Douglas fir and western hemlock that dominate Blackjack Creek corridor today displaced other types of trees about 6, years ago, as the local climate became cool and damp, the cultural report states. Oleyar worries about erosion that could result from trail building. Pilings for the boardwalk will rest on concrete blocks, not in the ground. Volunteers will be tapped to help remove English ivy and other invasive plants, as well as trash. Tribal members caught smelt and salmon, and dug for clams at a fish camp near the mouth of the creek. The Washington Territory was established in , and the state was formed in From the mids, Euro-Americans streamed into the region to pursue logging and later farming. He lives on Harrison Street next to the greenbelt and has been burglarized, he assumes, by some of the same "suspicious-looking" people he and his neighbors see going in and out of the ravine. About halfway up the trail, the rusted hulks of dozens of cars cascade down a precipice, buried in brush where they landed decades ago. The tribe wants the trail located as far from the creek as possible and direct access prohibited, Alison O'Sullivan, a biologist for the Suquamish Tribe, wrote to the city in May. But surveyors did need to cut vegetation and move dirt to locate and identify points along the trail. State wildlife officials share those worries. Weaver, who has worked on other urban trail projects, said the increased presence of people who care about the creek will discourage unwanted visitors and the debris they leave behind. The 1. Chinook and steelhead are considered threatened species. Throughout the planning process, the city has sought public input on the proposed trail and communicated with the Suquamish Tribe, whose ancestors had a fish camp near the mouth of the creek. There are no plans to remove them. The city received a shorelines exemption for the work, meaning a permit under the state's Shorelines Management Act was not required. Overhead are maples cloaked in moss. You like to leave those areas alone," Oleyar said. The Port Orchard hearing examiner has up to 14 days from June 14 to issue a decision on shorelines permits, including a conditional-use permit, for construction of Blackjack Creek Wilderness Trail. O'Sullivan said the needs of the public — and the opportunity for public education about the importance of the watershed — should be balanced with the needs of the creek ecosystem. Blackjack Creek is the traditional territory of the Lushootseed-speaking Suquamish Tribe. The trail should be open by September. A foot, handicapped accessible boardwalk will have two salmon viewing platforms with educational signs about the wildlife and history of the creek. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The creek runs silently on its way to Sinclair Inlet. Railings were added later by a Boy Scout troop. Blackjack then plunges into the ravine just north of the Sedgwick intersection and flows another 3 miles to Sinclair Inlet. Hemlock, fir and cedar trees stand tall and stately. Old growth cedar stumps bear the scars of loggers' springboards or platforms.
