Join us on May 25 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Iron Horse Brewery Taproom to toast to trails and learn about exciting events coming up in Central Washington. Registration is free, but be sure to RSVP!

Open for the season: With snow melting out and the days getting longer, some roads and trails are opening back up.

Trail and vehicle access closures: Be aware of some road and trail closures as well.

Landslide leads to bridge washout: The road to the Johnston Ridge Observatory at Mount St. Helens National Monument is closed past milepost 43, near the Science and Learning Center at Clearwater, due to a large landslide. Because of the amount of damage to the highway, the Washington State Department of Transportation does not currently know when the road can be reopened.
