Session Instructions

We park at the SWIFT Center, detailed driving directions follow – in red. From there it’s about a 15 minute walk to the Pump-house Trail. Please be on time. The safety meeting is at 9:00 am.

Sessions are rain or shine. We recommend wearing sturdy shoes and long pants. Bring your lunch, water for the day, and IF YOU ARE NOT VACCINATED please show up wearing a mask.

If you have favorite gloves, bring them. If not, no worries – we will have some for you. If you need a new face mask we’ll have a few of them too.

Detailed driving instructions: When traveling through Sedro-Woolley Highway 20 turns into Moore Street. At the north end of Moore Street, just past Janiki Industries (at a traffic light), you’ll see Fruitdale Road. That’s where you turn left (north) to go to the SWIFT Center, that takes you past Gateway Golf.

Stay on North Fruitdale Road, driving past Thompson Pond (on your right) continuing on to the roundabout. On the roundabout take the first right, which is Northern State Road. Stay straight, not turning right on Thompson Road. Turn right (east) on Hub Drive, you will see our sign at the corner. If you find yourself at a security office, then you missed the turn.

Follow Hub Drive east, past a number of historic buildings. As you near the end of that straight stretch of road you will see a large portable toilet in front of a row of trees. You should see our second sign that says, “Trail Builder Parking.” It will be on the right (south) side of Hub Drive, please park there.

Near the portable toilet, just north of it, there is an opening in the trees, it leads down a slope – and if you continue straight it will take you across the Dovetail Bridge. Continue across the bridge, and when you find yourself at a gravel double-track roadway, turn left – that takes you north. Stay on that road going an eighth to perhaps a quarter mile. The Pump-house Trail will be on your left, that is north and east of Hansen Creek.

The following map link provides an aerial view. When you zoom in, looking at it, hopefully the instructions will make sense.
