Pacific Northwest Trail Alerts

Major issues, such as trail and road closures affecting access to the Pacific Northwest Trail are logged as Trail Alerts. For thru-hikers and other PNT users who remain in the field for extended periods of time, the PNTA shares Trail Alerts through a free, email system. Subscribe at the link below.

PNT users should check for wildfire closures and fire restrictions before their visit. In many areas along the trail, campfires and certain camp stoves may be temporarily or permanently restricted due to risk of wildfire.

Seasonal Statement

Always check roadweather and trail conditions before your visit. Visitors should always be prepared for rugged conditions, route-finding challenges, and inclement weather.
