Spend a summer day in the deep shade of a cedar-hemlock forest with this PNTA crew maintaining Red Bluff TR 553, and the “PNT-classic”(originally designated) route on Halliday TR 522 and North Fork Sullivan Creek TR 507.
Help clear a path through the PNT by joining this log out party as a “swamper” who follows behind a PNTA sawyer, rolling log rounds and tossing branches off the trail. Crew members also use loppers or handsaws to trim back brush, saplings and branches growing in the corridor, and dirt work tools to repair the tread and clear drains along the way.
After we’ve cleared a path for the trail users and another volunteer work party that will work further up N Fk Sullivan Creek, PNTA crews will focus on protection work, like building turnpikes to cross over wet areas.
No trail crew experience necessary: the PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your daypack, and a thirst for a rewarding day on the trail!
