Spend a week outside! Take a Volunteer Vacation with Washington Trails Association in the spectacular backcountry of Washington state, and enjoy a week of fine cooking, fun folks and great scenery.


Several of WTA's Volunteer Vacations in 2006 maintain trails that are important access routes for popular climbing areas... Holden Village in May, Dutch Miller Gap in July, and Anderson-Watson Lakes area in September.



On a volunteer vacation, you will backpack in to the work site carrying your own tent, sleeping bag and other personal gear. We'll pack in the food, tools and other supplies. Give us a week, and we'll give you an extraordinary and rewarding backcountry experience you’ll never forget!




WTA has a fantastic array of 25 Volunteer Vacations planned this year, kicking off late March to replace a lost portion of the Carbon River Trail in Mount Rainier National Park. This one is a car camp at the Ipsuit Campground. May is a wonderful month to be at Lake Chelan, and that’s just where we’ll be - on the Chelan Lakeshore Trail at Moore Point. Much of the volunteer work involves sawing out downed trees with unique crosscut saws. In July, we’ll take a group to the Pacific Crest Trail at Pear Lake in the Glacier Peak Wilderness, where volunteers will nap in a garden of wildflowers when they’re not busy restoring this work portion of the PCT. In September, we’ll tend to the Little Wenatchee River Trail north of Leavenworth, which is now a major access to Dishpan Gap following the floods of 2003.




Come to WTA’s Volunteer Vacations open house at Seattle REI, Saturday March 4th, 11am-3pm. Talk to past Volunteer Vacationers and hear first-hand experiences of our weeklong trips into Washington’s wilderness to help trails. REI is located at 222 Yale Ave N. We’ll be at the fireplace on the first floor. See you there!
