  • All Forest Service lands closed in the Columbia River Gorge

    To align with state and local measures directing people to stay home to save lives, we have temporarily closed all National Forest System lands within the boundaries of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area to public access. It is prohibited to enter, be within, or park within National Forest System lands in the National Scenic Area. It also includes BZ Corner and Husum Falls sites, which provide access to the Lower White Salmon Wild & Scenic River. This area closure means that dispersed use and unofficial “user” trails are also off limits. The closure carries the full weight of law and can be enforced with citations - see the Forest Order and Map
