Sadly it does appear so

Heard the rumor, is it true?
According to the Port Blakely webpage, all their lands are closed to recreation entry due to fire danger.

I resurrected (unfortunately) the webpage I did from last year which has contact information on it to get the information straight from the landowners.

I had the question posted to me. "Just how much of the area we ride is PB property anyways?" Well, sad to say, about 90 % of it and you have to ride through it to get to the 5 way at the top of IAB.
No worries, will be good to get away from Tolt for a month or so and ride other places.

I don't remember Tolt having been closed before. Is this the first year that they have closed the trails due to fire danger? Assuming the area won't re-open til we get significant rainfall, this could be November. :confused:

Yeah, the same thing happened last year too. They got really freaked out when they had the big brush fire across the valley off Entwhistle street. Took about a month last year too before they got 2-3 days of good rain and opened it back up. No big loss for now.
