The Mt. Baker Road to Trail Project is Ready for Comments!

Sedro Wooley, Wash. September 19, 2018 – The U.S. Forest Service (FS), Mount Baker Ranger District (MBRD), is initiating public scoping on the Baker Lake Road to Trail project within the Upper Baker Lake Watershed. We are evaluating alternative trail locations for maintaining access to the Baker River trail and Baker Lake trail along the Baker River.

The river has damaged the Baker Lake Road a number of times in the past; currently there is a damaged section of road prior to the trailhead’s parking area. This effort will determine which trail relocation alternative provides the greatest certainty for long term recreation access, which also maintains or restores river and floodplain processes in addition to being economically feasible now and into the future.

In an effort to reduce paper use, the Forest will emphasize electronic correspondence throughout this project. Please include with your comment: 1) a valid e-mail or mailing address, and 2) your document format preference. The project website will be the primary avenue through which the Forest Service will provide information about the project. That website is: www.fs.usda.gov/goto/mbs/projects, under the heading “Baker Lake Road to Trail Project.”

Electronic comments are preferred and should be submitted with the following subject line, "Baker Lake Road to Trail Project", and as part of the actual e-mail message, or in another readable format such as plain text (.txt), rich text format (.rtf), .pdf, or Word (.doc or .docx) to: comments-pacificnorthwest-mtbaker-snoqualmie-mtbaker@fs.fed.us.

Written comments should be mailed or dropped off in person to:

Erin Uloth, Mt. Baker District Ranger

810 State Route 20

Sedro-Woolley, WA 98284-1263

 

If you prefer to have paper copies of project documents, or for more information regarding the project, please contact Jeremy Gilman, Team Leader, at (360) 854-2633, or e-mail: jmgilman@fs.fed.us.
