Hold your horses! Barbecue Flats area closed

Getting ready for Memorial Day adventures? Be sure to adjust your plans if you had planned on heading to Barbecue Flats dispersed recreation area in Yakima County— public access is closed.

DNR is working with other landowners to restore public access to this popular area, so stay tuned.

We recommend Cascade Camp as your best alternative for your hiking and equestrian adventures (see map for details).

Warning: There is no turn-around point once you hit the road closure.

What’s worse than being up a creek without a paddle? Driving a horse trailer to a road closure without a turn-around point.

On a more serious note, we are concerned about public safety. Please forward this blog to those you know who may want to visit this area.

The road closure is on Meloy Road, one mile from the junction of Wenas and Audubon Roads.
