Forest Service Releases EA on Whitechuck River Road

<< Change is the only constant in the Whitechuck valley.







The Forest Service has released an Environmental Assessment for rebuilding the Whitechuck River road in the Darrington Ranger District. Readers may remember previous articles in The Wild Cascades describing the effects of the major 2003 washouts, which totally erased substantial sections of the road, especially its lower reaches. The Whitechuck valley has been a conservation priority ever since the Everett Mountaineers attempted unsuccessfully to spare the valley from the railroad logging which began in its lower reaches in 1927. The road should not be rebuilt, but instead converted to multiuse non-motorized trail. See... http://www.northcascades.org/public_html/TWC_Summer-Fall-09_web.pdf
