Norse Peak Fire Announcement

Pacific Crest Trail Announcement

Incident: Norse Peak Fire Wildfire
Released: 8/31/2017

On August 31, the Pacific Crest Trail has reopened for hiking between White Pass and Chinook Pass. Rapid spread of the Norse Peak Fires and persistent fire weather caused it to be closed from White Pass to Government Meadow on Tuesday, August 29. The portion from Chinook Pass to Government Meadow remains closed. The Norse Peak Fire is burning near the Trail and has crossed it in places.

Through-hikers avoiding the closed area should consider planning how to rejoin the trail north of Government Meadow when they reach White Pass, as there is little cell phone connectivity at Chinook Pass, Hwy 410 is intermittently closed, and the eastern access to Government Meadow (Forest Road 19, “Little Naches Road”) is also closed.
