Naches Motorized Trails Closed For Public Safety and Resource Protection

Naches – A Forest Order went into effect on February 24, 2015 to prohibit use of all motorized vehicles on any National Forest system trail within the Naches Ranger District closure area.

It was determined that an emergency closure order was necessary due to the unprecedented early season snow melt period. “This year presented a unique situation,” said Naches District Ranger Kelly Lawrence. “These sections of trail are usually covered in heavy snow at this part of the year and the early snow melt has made them extremely vulnerable to resource damage.”

Forest Service Officials and members of the public have monitored trail conditions and have recommended the closure based on the deep rutting and erosion caused by tires on motorized vehicles when the ground is soft and wet. This closure if effective as of February 24, 2015 and will remain in effect until terminated.

Is "Clouser" the Canadian spelling of "closure"?
