The Shaser Creek ATV route, located on the North Shaser Road #7322 Road in the Blewett Pass area of the Wenatchee River Ranger District will be closed to all public use Monday-Friday beginning June 23, 2014 because of logging operations. The route will reopen sometime this fall.
The Shaser Creek area consists of a checkerboard ownership pattern where every other square mile land section is privately owned, with the alternate sections being National Forest. The current owner, Weyerhaeuser Columbia Timberlands, is beginning logging operations on their land in Section 21, with log-haul occurring on North Shaser Road #7322.
For public safety, the road will be closed to all users during the weekdays from 5:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. This will restrict all access to the ATV routes for the Iron Mountain and Etienne Creek areas.Logging operations are scheduled to continue into the fall.
