The Pacific Northwest Trail Association (PNTA) is seeking new board members.

PNTA board members work to provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance for the Pacific Northwest Trail (PNT).

The PNT is a 1200-mile non-motorized recreation trail running from the Continental Divide in Montana's Glacier National Park to the Pacific Ocean on Washington's Olympic Coast. It was designated the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail by Congress under the National Trails System Act* in 2009. The PNT crosses three national parks, seven national forests, two other national scenic trails and several mountain ranges.

The PNTA is a healthy 501c3 with a growing base of support. Board members are involved with fundraising, outreach, strategic planning and programmatic oversight working to see the PNT completed, protected, and funded while maintaining a commitment to the PNTA’s mission.

PNTA Mission

The mission of the Pacific Northwest Trail Association (PNTA) is to protect and promote the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail (PNT), and to enhance recreation and educational opportunities for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

PNTA Vision

The PNT corridor is permanently protected, well maintained, and effectively managed. Users enjoy the trail for its nationally recognized natural, scenic, and cultural resources.

The PNTA serves stakeholders through volunteerism, education, and access that encourages advocacy and builds community for the PNT.

If you are looking for an opportunity to serve your community and have an impact on our shared natural and cultural heritage, please consider PNTA board membership. Your energy will be appreciated while you learn new skills and make new friendships. 

Board meetings are held six times per year (5 virtual and 1 in-person).

Thank you for considering this opportunity. If you have questions or would like additional information please contact board@pnt.org.


*The National Trails Act requires government agencies to designate a nonprofit organization to partner with in the management of the trail. Administration of the trail was assigned to the US Forest Service. The PNTA is proud to be the designated nonprofit partner in managing the PNT.
