INLAND NW ROUTES
So you plan a hike to your favorite area.
Once at the trailhead, you find the USFS has closed the area or restricted specific activities within the area.
DO NOT BLOW THIS WARNING OFF.
This is an excerpt from a current closure notice, listed in that Ranger District’s website ALERTS
The USFS and other government agencies, post their closures and are serious about enforcement.
However, a recent closure did not explain the reason for the closure.
This may lead visitors to violate the closure.
Do not take any chances when you see these closures.
For this reason, David and I have created a section in each write up that shows you places near by that are good alternatives to your original hike/outing.
It’s called “COOL THINGS CLOSE BY:”
Please refer to this section if you find yourself unable to hike as planned.
Which illustrates the need to call each Ranger District, several days before your trip.
Ask about closures, fires, road conditions, so you can plan your trip accordingly.
Current closures are listed below, on our HOME PAGE.
And to be sure our readers get the message, I’ve listed any closures orders under the events opening image.
This all came about a few years ago when we drove 2.5 hours north, only to find that Boundary County was replacing a bridge a mere 400’ from the turn off.
We had to get back to 95 and access the frontage road via Copeland, which is near the U.S.- Canadian boarder.
It set our hike back 1.5 hours.
Please plan your trip days in advance, then check InlandNWRoutes.com, and the USFS for any Forest ALERTS.
THANK YOU, FOR BEING OUR READERS,
