How Do You Hike on Mount-Baker Snoqualmie Lands?
Don't miss your opportunity to shape the future of roads in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Attend the last public meeting in Everett on Nov. 13 and fill out a short questionnaire before the Nov. 30 deadline.
Don't miss the last Mount Baker-Snoqualmie (MBS) National Forest public meeting to help shape the future of the roads system on the MBS. The meeting, the last in a series, will be held at 5 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at Everett Community College.
Make your hiking preferences a part of the process
The forest is hosting a process to help the public provide feedback about how it manages public access to trails while balancing preserving the environment and stewarding scarce public funds.
This Sustainable Roads Analysis is your chance to provide feedback on where you recreate on National Forests and how you get there. Mount Baker-Snoqualmie staff and local recreation and conservation leaders will be on hand to answer your questions and provide their insights.
Why is access in the MBS so important?
Those of us who enjoy hikes from the 1-90 corridor to the Mountain Loop Highway will be affected by decisions that come out of this process. See the maps of the trails that could be affected.
The public's input will help the Sustainable Roads Cadre (an alliance of more than 20 organizations that Washington Trails Association and The Wilderness Society helped spearhead) make decisions that will manage public access to trails while balancing preserving the environment and allocating scarce public funds. This is your chance to provide feedback on where you recreate on National Forests and how you get there.
Two ways to let your voice be heard\
1. Attend the public meeting.
2. Can't make the meeting? Fill out the survey.
The deadline to fill out a short questionnaire has been extended to November 30 and we want you to weigh in with your feedback regarding road access.
Once you've taken the survey, ensure that your voice continues to be heard. Sign up for the Trail Action Network and receive periodic alerts about important issues that affect hikers, like road access, invites to advocacy-oriented events, and tips for activists.
