Volunteer to restore the PNT between Goodenough Peak and Horseshoe Basin in the Pasayten Wilderness. This section of the trail was impacted by wildfire in 2015 and could use your help.
Our crew will backpack in approximately four miles to a dispersed camp site near Long Draw trail then spend several days repairing and preventing tread erosion.
Please note, this backcountry Drop-in Work Party is suitable for volunteers with previous experience.
Drop-in volunteers make a difference by working alongside PNTA Performance Crews. PNTA staff work on site for the duration of the event, but volunteers are welcome to participate for as long as they like.
The PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your daypack, and a thirst for a rewarding day on the trail. See Resources (below) for Frequently Asked Questions and daypack recommendations.
This trip may be pack supported by our partners with the Backcountry Horsemen of Washington.
See Resources (below) for Frequently Asked Questions and packing recommendations.
Other Ways to Volunteer
Pack support volunteers— people and/or stock animals—are welcome! These volunteers will help move tools and supplies in and out of our backcountry “spike camp,” so the crew can direct more of their energy towards trail work.
