Skagit Trail Builders (STB) evolved out of Mount Vernon Trail Builders (MVTB). Our work at Little Mountain Park began in May of 2009 and ended in March of 2017. In those seven years we amassed more than 14,000 volunteer hours; building and maintaining seven miles of high quality and sustainable multi-use trails.
It is important to note, before that work could begin we had to earn the opportunity through advocacy. We encouraged our friends, families, and community to attend public meetings. Expressing your support for trails is essential. Our advocacy, nearly a decade ago, produced a trails-centric vision for Little Mountain Park.
We are grateful for the opportunity we had at Little Mountain Park. Our goal was to make the park more accessible to the public. The Heart of the Park (HOP) Public Trails Facility and Bicycle Skills Park has been in the works for years, so we were pleased to hear Mount Vernon still plans to complete it; which will add parking, restrooms and a bicycle skills park.
We are proud of the trails we designed and built at Little Mountain, but our mission has grown. The demand for trails will only increase, and we know our community supports them. Our new and larger goal is to build trails in Skagit County.
We break ground at the SWIFT Campus center this Spring. Our new partners are Skagit County Parks and Recreation, the Port of Skagit, and the City of Sedro-Woolley. To be successful we will need your support…

Our mission continues to be building multi-use trails, ones designed for hikers, runners, and mountain bikers – and to connect these trails to local parks, schools, neighborhoods and our down-towns. This in our view provides the greatest benefit to the residents of Skagit County, and its visitors – to walk, run, and bike for fun, recreation, transportation, and health.
Lastly, by December 1, 2018 – please show your support for local trails by completing the Skagit County Parks and Recreation survey.
