Trail Riding Can Commence!


North Kitsap Trails Association

Good News: Port Gamble Trails Reopened!

Pope Resources announced today that after the recent rainfall, Olympic Resource Management (who manages the company's timber-lands) has reopened all of the Hood Canal Tree Farm lands in Kitsap, Jefferson and Mason counties for public use.The trails have been temporarily closed since September 13 due to extreme fire hazard. This is great news for all our local trail users who once again have access to the Port Gamble area trails and other Pope Resources land. More information is available on their website.
Also, Pope Resources recently announced a delay in the scheduled fall logging of 72 acres on the Port Gamble uplands block, through year end 2012. The reason for the delay is to allow time for continued negotiations by Forterra (formerly Cascade Land Conservancy) to acquire this portion of the Port Gamble uplands block, as part of the Kitsap Forest and Bay land conservation efforts.
Thank you,
North Kitsap Trails Association
