The Flume Creek Trail approaches the summit of iconic Abercrombie Mountain from the east and makes up part of the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. Volunteer to help get the trail in shape for PNT thru-hikers and other visitors this season.
Volunteer “swampers” will work with PNTA sawyers, rolling log rounds and removing cut branches from the trail corridor. We can also spot maintain the tread, clear drains, and prune back brush along the way.
No trail crew experience is necessary for this event. The PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your daypack, and a thirst for a rewarding day on the trail!
Crew leaders work on the trail for the duration of the trip, but volunteer crew members are free to participate for as long as they like.
