- Coordinates with and supports major connecting trails, such as the Sound to Olympics Trail and the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail.
- Solicits and manages donated funds which are used to support construction and maintenance of the trail.And, perhaps most importantly
- We manage extensive volunteer-based trail construction and maintenance projects.Today, the PTC can call on better than 150 volunteers to help.Volunteers manage projects including:
- Construction and updating, of all the railroad trestles along the route, including 3 that are over 400 feet long, with new decking, railings, and ramps.
- Route construction varying from preliminary brushing and flagging, clearing and staking, to complete construction of trail sections including the installation of signs and bollards.
- Creation of trail heads with landscaping, built fences, and installed sanicans.
