Volunteers Building Local Trails.

Grubby, happy volunteers – in Sedro Woolley, WA – December 2021.

The mission of Skagit Trail Builders is to build and maintain multi-use trails and advocate for their connection to surrounding communities.

We design and build trails for; hikers, runners, mountain bikers, dog-walkers and families. This benefits the residents of Skagit County and its visitors, so they can walk, run, and bike for fun, recreation, transportation, and health.

Our work began at Little Mountain Park in Mount Vernon, Washington. In our seven years there, as Mount Vernon Trail Builders, we put in over 14,000 volunteer hours; building and maintaining seven miles of high quality and sustainable multi-use trails. We love seeing people out on the trails!

Now, as Skagit Trail Builders, we are building trails at Northern State Recreation Area (NSRA) in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. We are nearing 4,000 volunteer hours at NSRA.

In 2019 we went to work on the Dovetail Bridge that connects the SWIFT Campus Center to Northern State Recreation Area.

This year we are building a bridge over Hill Creek, at the old pump house. Eventually it will double the length of the Pump House Trail, turning it into a loop trail.

Access from the SWIFT Campus Center is about to be improved, and trail maps and trail signage is expected later this year.

Volunteers work to connect the Pump House Trail to the bridge.

For trail building updates please signup for e-news, like us on Facebook or Instagram. If you love trails, and want to help, please join us as a volunteer or make a donation.

We look forward to ‘more normal’ sessions this year. We will continue to follow evolving safety protocols that help us keep our volunteers safe.

This video goes waaaaaay back to when we worked at Little Mountain Park in Mount Vernon, WA, but we still love it!
