Moving rock across the creek using a hi-line!

On Saturday, April 23 we had great weather and a solid turnout with 15 hard working volunteers, all contributing their time and energy to the project! The Skagit Valley Herald attended and wrote about it.

We had three teams working. One team at the trail entrance, spreading top soil and planting grass seed. Another team was working on the bridge. The third team had the exciting task of moving rock across the creek using a hi-line! Check out the video below.

The bridge over Hill Creek isn’t finished yet, so how do we move rock across the creek safely? Using a hi-line! For more videos, follow us on instagram @skagittrailbuilders

Volunteers spread top soil at the trail entrance in preparation for planting grass seed.

Checkout our new t-shirts! A big thanks to Adam at Cedar Creek Printing, of Burlington, WA. The significant discount he provided made hoodies for our leadership possible.

A big thanks to our volunteers and supporters!
