Project Description

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!

About Drop-in Work Parties
“Drop-in” volunteers make a difference by boosting the capacity of a PNTA Performance Crew. The crew works on site for the duration of the trip, but volunteers are welcome to participate for as long as they like.

Meals are available for multi-day participants who register early enough for us to include them in meal plans.  (See Meals deadline in Project Details, above.)

Want to dig deeper and play longer? The Performance Crew works at this location for a full week.  Reach out to the Project Leader at if you’d like to coordinate participation on day not listed in the registry.
