Northern State Ghost Town


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. This activity will count as participation in a conservation or stewardship activity that will count toward earning The Mountaineers Stewardship Credit Badge.

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. Be ready to go at 8:25 am.

Directions will be sent to registered participants 5-6 days prior to the event. Carpooling is  encouraged.

Toilet available at this location.

No permits required.

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

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" available, all levels welcome.
