Join the PNTA and thousands of other volunteers across the country in a national day of service for hometown trails and the people who love them.
This National Trails Day we’ll be working on the Swift Creek Trail. With your help, we can ensure that this essential pathway through the North Cascades remains open for backpackers traveling across the Mt Baker Wilderness, and from Crown-to-Coast. The Swift Creek Trail provides a critical route for Pacific Northwest Trail thru-hikers.
Wilderness regulations will apply at this event. We’ll be using crosscut and hand saws to clear the logs and tackling some basic tread and drainage work with pulaskis, McLeods, picks and shovels.
We will meet at the Swift Creek Trailhead (at Baker Hot Springs) at 9:00am, have a quick safety chat and then get to work improving the trail, working until mid-afternoon.
This event is great for both seasoned trail stewards and folks with minimal experience!
