We’ve been informed that a comment period is now open, until August 2, on the USFS’s plan to “reopen” an official trail in the lower Pratt River drainage.

The USFS is soliciting comments on an environmental assessment (EA) which looks at reconstructing over 3-miles of the Lower Pratt River Trail #1035. Although portions of the trail can still be found, and have been used during missions in the Pratt Valley, the segment under consideration has not been maintained for over 40-years. The proposed project would reconstruct/relocate portions beginning at the Middle Fork Trailhead and continuing south to the confluence of the Pratt and Middle Fork Snoqualmie Rivers.

If you would like to see an official trail in place, please comment. Comments can be submitted through the mail, by fax, hand delivered, or emailed.
