Forest Recreation: Plan Ahead and Know Before You Go!

EVERETT, Wa., May 21, 2019 – Along with many of the Puget Sound’s 7 million residents, the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest is gearing up for an active summer with warm weather and plenty of time outdoors. As a world-class recreation destination, maintaining your forest and its recreational opportunities is a high priority.

However certain road, trail, and recreation sites can occasionally close on a year–to-year basis depending on available resources, maintenance required, and the extent of seasonal weather damage.

For the coming summer months, visitors can expect some changes in services and/or access from the previous 2018 season. Changes may be short lived or may extend the duration of the year; to ensure your next visit is a great one, please click here for a list of known seasonal changes for 2019.

The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest greatly values our visitors and is committed to providing the public with only the best of outdoor experiences, so please always remember to plan ahead and visit our road and trail conditions page here or contact your local ranger station to speak with any of our Visitor Information Specialists.
