The mission of Skagit Trail Builders is to design, build and maintain multi-use trails, for all kinds of users. Hikers, runners, mountain bikers, dog walkers and families.
Trails benefit the residents of Skagit County and its visitors in many ways! Trails provide a safe place to walk, run, and bike – for fun, recreation, transportation – while supporting the health of people and our community.
Our work began at Little Mountain Park in Mount Vernon, Washington. In our seven years there, as Mount Vernon Trail Builders, we amassed over 14,000 volunteer hours; building and maintaining seven miles of high quality and sustainable multi-use trails.
Now, as Skagit Trail Builders, we are building trails at Northern State Recreation Area (NSRA) in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. On this project, so far, our volunteers have put in 4,730 hours.
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 recently improved, and trail maps and trail signage are expected later this year.
We are back to ‘near normal’ sessions, as we follow evolving safety protocols that help keep our volunteers safe.
