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 always check for wildfire closures before their visit. Temporary fire restrictions may also be in effect. 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.

Trail Alerts

The PNT is wild and rugged. It passes through areas where forecasts and current info may not exist. Mountains and wilderness are dynamic places and conditions you experience may be different than those reported here. The information shown on this webpage is reported by agency partners, staff, and visitors like you. 

You can share information about trail conditions using the form below. If you see smoke or flames dial 911 or report the incident to a ranger as soon as possible. Contact PNTA for trail information at 360-854-9415.
