Project Description

We’re seeking experienced volunteers to help log out the PNT in the Salmo-Priest Wilderness.

Drop-in volunteers and our Performance Trail Crew may be the first people to set foot in the wilderness this year. Our mission is to clear the Congressional route of the PNT on Shedroof Cutoff Trail 511 and get the trail ready for summer visitors. We will also clear a critical access trail to the PNT the Shedroof Divide Trail 512 via Thunder Creek Trail 526.

Volunteers will take turns as sawyers, helping to operate a large two-person crosscut saw to clear fallen logs from the trail way. When they are ready to take a break from the saw, they can also help by working as “swampers” who assist sawyers by rolling the log rounds and branches they have cut from the trail. 

At this work party, there will also be opportunities to use loppers and smaller handsaws to trim back brush and saplings, and to us dirt work tools to repair the tread and clear drains along the way. 

The PNTA provides tools, personal protective equipment, and training. Just bring yourself, your daypack and camp gear (if you’ll stay overnight), and a thirst for a uniquely rewarding way to experience the PNT!
