Help restore access to the Glacier Peak Wilderness
UPDATE: We asked for your help on this issue in March of this year and your voice was heard. 86% of respondents to the original comment period want the Suiattle River Road opened thank you for taking action! However our work to reopen this essential road into Glacier Peak Wilderness is not quite finished.
The Federal Highway Administration and the Forest Service have released a slightly amended Environmental Assessment that closes small loopholes but still presents the same three road alternatives presented in the March 2012 Environmental Assessment.
You can help restore access to the majestic Glacier Peak Wilderness by asking the Federal Highway Administration and National Forest Service to restore the 23-mile Suiattle River Road (Alternative B).
Suiattle River Road, also known as Forest Road 26, is a critical western portal to the Glacier Peak Wilderness. Flood events in 2003, 2006 and 2007 have made the road impassable. This limits access to some of the best hikes, lakes and peaks of Glacier Peak Wilderness. It also limits access to the iconic Image Lake and Pacific Crest Trail.
You can help by asking the Federal Highway Administration and the Forest Service to restore the 23-mile Suiattle River Road, which will once again allow access to these iconic places. Use the below form to ask the Highway Administration and Forest Service to restore this important road.
And, if you’ve visited the Glacier Peak Wilderness, please take a moment to share your experiences by editing the letter below.
