Because of the 2015 Cougar Creek Burn on Mt. Adams, cattle trespass probably won’t be a problem for at least a couple of years. Most of the forage area burned and will have to recover before grazing permits are issued by the Forest Service and Yakama Nation. Drift fences were destroyed on the National Forest and Yakama Tribe lands, and it will take time to replace them.
Friends of Mt. Adams will report on the issue next summer (2016).
