This view may be inaccessible for eight months.

According to the WTA, the Lake Serene Trail is one of the most popular in Washington. But hikers could be denied access for 8 months if Weyerhauser, who owns property that surrounds a section of the trail, decides to log. Their proposal: issue an official temporary closure order from September 5, 2017, to July 1, 2018. The Forest Service is currently taking comment; the Everett Herald offers this opinion.

UPDATE: Kiro 7 reports that conservation groups are fighting hard to preserve the trail.
