Project Description

Help our Performance Crews maintain the Bell Pass and South Fork Nooksack Trails by delivering their mid-hitch resupply!

Our trail crews work in the backcountry for 8 days at a time. You can help them get more work done on the trail by carrying food and other supplies to their spike camp at Mazama Camp. This is a great way to support trail work on the PNT and enjoy a side trip to the Park Butte Lookout!

We will be loading backpacks with supplies and hiking into an exceptionally scenic part of the PNT.  The hike to Mazama Camp is roughly three miles one-way and climbs 1,900 feet to the shelter.

We’ll meet at the Ridley Creek Trailhead on Forest Road 38 at 9:00 am, have a quick safety chat and then start hiking. We hope to return to the trailhead by 3:00 pm. High-clearance vehicles are recommended along Forest Road 38. 

Volunteers must bring lunch, water, and stable hiking shoes. If you have a backpack larger than 50 liters that you want to load with the crew’s food you can bring it. If not, we have plenty of packs we can lend you.

This event is great for anyone who can hike six moderately challenging miles with some weight on their back! Even if you can’t carry more than a few pounds, you are welcome to join us!

Note this event has been moved from the Elbow Lake Trailhead to the Ridley Creek Trailhead.
