Glad to say that the Suiattle River Road, FSR #26, is cleared from the slide and is now reopened, all the Suiattle area trails are accessible!  A reminder that the Mountain Loop Highway is still gated for winter.

A slide came down on the Suiattle River Road, FSR #26, during the last heavy rains.  The road is not badly damaged but a lot of materials washed and piled up at the first concrete ford in the road at about mile 3.  Crews are currently working to get the road reopened.

A White Christmas For Darrington!

posted Dec 24, 2015, 3:10 PM by Martha Rasmussen

Six inches of snow and more snow falling, Darrington will be all decorated in a winter wonderland for a white Christmas!  Tomorrow looks like it will be colder and clouds opening up for some pretty breathtaking views of the mountains!  The Segelsen - Finney Snow Park currently has snow at the Segelsen parking area however there is a washout on FSR #17, Finney Forest Road so the two snowmobiles trails for the snow park are not joined together.

Heavy Rains Help With Fire

Significant rain fell last weekend leaving the forest fire on Jumbo Mountain slowed and smoldering.  The surrounding forest has been drenched making it unlikely that Jumbo Mountain fire will spread.  Lets all hope for rain for our burning fires on the eastside!

Fire On Jumbo Mountain

There is a forest fire on Jumbo Mountain south of the town of Darrington.  This 70 acre fire caused by a lightning strike is constantly being monitored and contained by rock faces on either side.  The Mountain Loop Highway, surrounding campgrounds, hiking trails and other recreation are currently open.  A reminder that there are no campfires allowed at this time due to the extremely dry summer!
