Project Description

With your help, PNTA crews will restore part of the Kettle Crest trail system between the Lambert and Old Stage Trails. You can sign up to join us for a day, or camp out at the Lambert Trailhead if you’d like to help out for the entire weekend.

This event is great for beginners. “Swampers” will help clear a path through the brush by following behind PNTA sawyers who will cut downed trees along the trail. Volunteers will help them get more done by rolling freshly cut log rounds and tossing branches off the trail. Volunteers will also help clear brush from the trail by using loppers or handsaws, and they may help restore the trail’s tread and drains along the way.

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!
