Help maintain Mount Baker's main northern climbing route as we work with the Forest Service to replace failing boardwalks and other needed improvements.

This trail needs a variety of maintenance to keep it in great shape and minimize impacts on the surrounding area. Activities may include pruning back overgrown vegetation, replacing failing boardwalks and digging new paths for water to flow off the trail. We may also restore the tread. This involves digging the trail surface to the proper width and slope as well as removing organic material, protruding rocks and roots.
