Mount Baker Area. Join us for the weekend in the spectacular North Cascades near Mount Baker. You and your crew will be surrounded by panoramic views, glaciers and meadows. Camping at trailhead.
If you can only make it for either Saturday or Sunday, that's fine.
The work site is a 1.5 mile hike toward Park Butte. Work may include rebuilding a ford, repairing tread, re-setting check steps, and any other annual maintenance that is needed. http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/park-butte
From Burlington (exit 230 on I-5), head east on the North Cascades Highway (State Route 20) for 23 miles, turning left (north) onto Baker Lake Road (between mileposts 82 and 83). Continue 12 miles and turn left on Forest Road 12 (the turnoff is 0.2 mile after you enter the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest). Drive 3.5 miles, turn right onto FR 13 (signed "Mt Baker National Recreation Area"), and follow it for 5.2 miles to its terminus at the large trailhead parking area (elev. 3300 ft). Primitive camping and privy available.
