Bird Creek Meadows is now closed
The Yakama Nation has now closed Tract D, including Bird Creek Meadows, for the season. Tract D was open for September. This closure affects not only the road to Bird Creek Meadows, but also trail access from Forest Service lands. Although closed signs may not be posted at all boundaries, access to Yakama lands to hikers is now closed. This includes from the Cold Springs Trail, Round the Mountain Trail, as well as from the Highline Trail to Avalanche Valley on the northeast side of the mountain. Please respect Yakama Nation rules and limit your hiking to Forest Service lands. Thank you for your cooperation.
Friends of Mt Adams has completed our project to remove the old snow pole from Divide Camp Meadow. The snow pole was installed in the 1970s and only used for a few years. Please read here for details or use the link in the Projects dropdown above.
We have also have finally initiated our project to distribute copies of Ever Wild (see sidebar to the right) to libraries free of charge. A report on this will soon be posted under the Projects link. The start of this project was delayed because all libraries had been closed.
