COVID-19 Updates and the PNT

The Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail passes through many different public and private lands. In partnership with local land managers and gateway communities, PNTA will aggregate the latest info regarding COVID-19 related closures that affect access to the PNT on this webpage. Please visit our blog for the latest COVID-19 updates about our work at the Pacific Northwest Trail Association.

The latest guidance recommends that all Americans should reduce travel, practice social distancing, wear face masks, and avoid social gatherings in groups. The PNTA urges visitors to follow the guidance of the CDC and local authorities to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.

Important: PNTA staff provide these updates to the best our ability. Due to rapidly changing nature of the crisis, we strongly recommend checking with the local land manager for the latest information at the links provided. Travelers to the Pacific Northwest should should take personal responsibility in complying with public health orders, verifying travel bookings, and exercising recommended safety protocols as new and changing restrictions are occurring daily.
