Public Review of Environmental Assessment


Sedro Woolley, WA- The public is invited to comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) that proposes two projects in North Cascades National Park. The first project consists of rerouting a 2,400-foot section of the Brush Creek Trail and the relocation of the Graybeal Hiker and Stock Camps. The second project consists of the construction of additional backcountry camp accommodations at Six Mile Camp and Bridge Creek Camp primarily for Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (PCT) long-distance permit holders. Considering recent environmental and visitor use changes, the purpose of this action is to maintain existing, and create new, overnight backcountry camping opportunities while preserving wilderness character and conserving the natural and cultural resources in North Cascades National Park Service Complex. Specific attention is given to minimizing and managing the impacts associated with backcountry recreation (hiking, backpacking, and stock packing).

An EA analyzes the environmental impacts of the proposed project and a no action alternative to help determine whether the National Park Service should carry out the proposed action.
