The closure will be carried out in conjunction of the DNR and Washington Conservation Corps, removing structures, re-vegetating and a gate closing motorized access to the trail head at an estimated cost of $23,000. The land is currently being logged, which has already destroyed several trails. Any impact by trails is significantly less than logging activities.
What can you do to help? Get in touch with DNR staff and the Whatcom County Tourism and voice your support of the trails and displeasure at the closure. For contact information and more details about the closure see the Pinkbike article by Thad Quinn.
