Fire Update

2/26/2018 – The Eagle Creek fire has closed the southern portion of the Chinook Trail which is in Oregon in and around the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

These trails will be closed at least until the spring of 2018 or longer. There is expected to be severe weather impacts to the trail as burnt trees topple and landslides occur. Check the National Forest websites for updates.

The fires have been quenched by winter rain and snow and the Forest Service is making plans for trailwork in 2018. Come to our annual meeting in February 25th and learn more.

The Forest Service plans to open trails on the east and west ends of the burn first, along with the Pacific Crest Trail.
