Good news for fans of Mount Si: DNR will reopen the Little Si and Mount Si trailheads and trails at 8 a.m. this Friday, March 9.

For public safety reasons, we closed the area on February 15 after a single-engine airplane crashed in the Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area (NRCA). We kept the area closed during the initial investigation and while a contract helicopter salvage crew could remove the wreckage. The flight path of the removal process will go over these popular trails. Unfortunately, winter weather (snow, poor visibility) delayed the removal operation.

With more favorable weather conditions today and tomorrow, we are expecting the contractor to be able to remove the wreckage before Friday. If the removal isn’t complete, we will still open the area but may have to have a one-day closure in the near future to finish the process.

We know what a popular place this is, and know how many of you have been longing to get back out to Mount Si. Thank you for your patience!
