Stewardship - Northern State Ghost Town

We will join the Skagit Trail Builders at the Northern State Recreation Area, near Sedro Woolley, for a day of trail work on a new trail. Participation in this stewardship activity will count toward earning Mountaineers Stewardship Credit Badge. Priority registration for GoHike Course participants May 3-22 by leader permission. This will be a mentored stewardship leader event.

We will meet at the parking area for volunteers, located on the Port of Skagit S.W.I.F.T.campus at the corner of Hub Dr and Planters Rd in Sedro Woolley, WA. at 8:25 am.

After we arrive, we will gear up, do introductions and make our way to the trailhead to meet our Stewardship Partners, Skagit Trail Builders. It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the parking area to the trail head.

We will have a better idea of what our specific stewardship or conservation activities will be closer to our trip date. This will be communicated to you in the Hello Hiker email that will be sent out a few days before our trip.

  • We plan to arrive at the Pump House Trailhead at 8:50 am so we have time to sign in before we start our safety meeting. We work 9am-4pm, rain or shine.
  • There are a variety of jobs to choose from from light duty to heavy duty.
  • You will need to bring lunch, snack and water for the day.
