Road # 15 (Cascade River Road Opening

Release Date: Sep 15, 2021

Everett, WA, Sept. 16, 2021 - Forest System Road #15 (Cascade River Road) is open effective September 16, 2021 now that the potential fire threat is greatly reduced and the expected rain in the weekend weather forecast.  North Cascades National Park staff report that the Cascade River Road will be open to vehicular traffic to the El Dorado parking area (milepost 20).  Access beyond that will be foot traffic only, due to additional debris and rocks that have fallen near the Boston Basin culvert.  Crews will assess the damage over the next several days to determine a course of action.  For additional information please contact North Cascades National Park at 360-854-7245.


The Mt. Baker Ranger District Cascade River Trail, the Middle Fork Cascade Trail and South Fork Cascade Trail are closed due to rolling debris and falling trees from Pincer Creek Fire. The Sibley Creek Road and Hidden Lake Trail are not currently threatened by the fire, but are closed to allow firefighters to staff the lookout to support fire operations.
