Blow one last kiss to summer from the shores of Sullivan Creek with this PNTA crew maintaining the Mill Pond Historic Site. The PNT may be routed through part of this system someday, and the PNTA had a hand in completing the new loop trail here. These low-elevation trails in the Sullivan Lake Area offer a family-friendly jaunt through the woods.
On this trip we’ll tidy the figure-eight loops of Sullivan Creek TR 565 and Elk Creek TR 560, as well as Mill Pond South TR 550, Mill Pond Flume TR 520, and Flood Plain TR 523.
We’ll use loppers and handsaws to trim back brush, saplings and branches growing in the corridor, and dirt work tools to spot repair the tread and clear 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!
See Resources (below) for Frequently Asked Questions and daypack recommendations.

About Trip Duration
Volunteer crew members are free to participate for as long as they like. For example, you can join the crew as day-trip participant, or make this a multi-day adventure.
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? Crew leaders work at this location for nearly a week, and transportation between a rendezvous location in Kettle Falls and the project location may be available for crew members who opt to stick around for maximum trip duration.
