Project Description

Recent wind events and winter conditions have brought down dozens of trees across the trail that travels the east side of Baker Lake on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Our experienced Crew Leaders will work with volunteers to continue to reopen this popular year-round section of PNT.

Crew Leaders and other Region 6 USFS Certified Sawyers will use chainsaws to buck trees, but they can use all the help they can get in moving the cut sections and brushing the corridor. There may also be opportunities to use crosscut saws for folks with less experience.

Participants will meet at the Baker Lake Trailhead and work north. They must have a daypack, lunch, water, long pants, long sleeves and boots.

We will meet at the Baker Lake Trailhead at 9:00am, have a quick safety chat and then get to work clearing the trail of logs both large and small. Take lunch on the banks of beautiful Baker Lake and then work until about 3:00pm.

This event is great for both seasoned trail stewards and folks with minimal experience!
