Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest approved a proposal to decommission and remove 10 miles of old decaying logging roads located adjacent to the Wild Sky Wilderness. These roads no longer provide recreational access but pose aquatic risks to the Harlan Creek watershed. Washington Wild, along with three other organizations, submitted comments on the Environmental Assessment in support of the project’s goals to decommission a significant part of the Harlan Creek Road System and address ORV trespass issues into the Wild Sky Wilderness.
