Enchantments Permits, ODT trail closure, latest Rainier trail conditions

A few outdoor notes for the weekend:
  • The window for the Enchantments permit lottery will open on Sunday Feb 15th and run through Tuesday, March 3rd. Unlike St Helens permits, when you apply in the window doesn't matter; all entries have an equal chance. For more information, see the recent WTA post on the topic, and see here for more information on the Enchantments.

  • The Olympic Discovery Trail facebook page reports that there has been a landslide on the trail near Port Angeles, and the Dungeness River Bridge has been significantly damaged with no timetable for fixing it. A detour is in place. This post has some additional details.

  •  The latest Mt Rainier trail conditions report has been released.
