As you may have learned from the history page, USFS issued a letter denying any action on our request for a public process. We feel that USFS did not adequately defend or justify their decision to leave the existing closure order in place. As such, we have submitted a formal response, which clearly indicates our dissatisfaction with their decision and includes additional input and analysis from our research supporting our position. This letter was submitted to the USFS in February 2013 and we are currently awaiting any formal response.
PCTRI continues to pursue all possible channels to encourage USFS to do as the agency originally indicated and initiate a transparent, public process to reconsider or reassess the 1988 closure order. Meanwhile, PCTRI strongly encourages anyone interested in this issue to make plans to visit the PCT by foot or on horseback to experience for yourself the grandeur and the adventure that awaits on one of the greatest recreational trail resources in the world. It’s your interest, enthusiasm and commitment that will lead to the day when you will also be able to enjoy the PCT by bicycle.
