Volunteer to work with the PNTA on the Bell Pass Trail on the Mt. Baker National Forest. We’ll be backcountry camping north of the Pacific Northwest Trail at beautiful Elbow Lake, and working on the Bell Pass Trail to the east and the Elbow Lake Trail to the west.
Please note, this backcountry Drop-in Work Party is suitable for volunteers with previous experience who can also carry a backpack while hiking up to 10 miles in a day.
Drop-in volunteers make a difference by working alongside PNTA Performance Crews. PNTA staff work on site for the duration of the event, but volunteers are welcome to participate for as long as they like.
The PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your backpacking kit, and a thirst for a rewarding dew days on the trail. See the resources (below) for Frequently Asked Questions and gear recommendations.
