  • Permits are required in this area for all fee-based (course-related) activities, regardless of group size. Leaders may list trips at this route/place with the understanding that they need to verify that a permit has been obtained before running the trip (if required as outlined above). Permit applications are submitted to WA Department of Natural Resources annually in December. Please contact Amanda Virbitsky at amandav@mountaineers.org with any additional questions, or to obtain a permit for the current calendar year.
  • If you are scheduling this as a non-stewardship related activity, please limit your group size to the default party size. The maximum party size is for use by stewardship trips only, and includes both participants and leaders.
