  • Sat–Tue (Aug 28–31) we’ll camp at Swan Lake as we work to make an honest National Scenic Trail out of the 1–2 miles of PNT route between the lake and Forest Road 5314.

No trail crew experience is necessary; our friendly and professional leaders will welcome you into the stewardship experience, and the PNTA provides the tools and PPE you need for a uniquely satisfying day on the trail.

Volunteer crew members are free to participate for as long as they like— whether that’s for part of a day, or a multi-day adventure. Meals are included for multi-day participants who opt to camp with the leaders and who register by Friday, August 20th.
