The Washington State Department of Natural Resources has announced that timber harvests this summer and next will necessitate the closure of some trails and increase traffic on some forest roads. From their post:

Road construction and timber harvest will require DNR to temporarily close a 1.6 mile section of the Tiger Mountain Trail from the Middle Tiger Trail junction south towards the West Side Road (#1000) trail junction. 

The Karisrun timber sale may also require DNR to temporarily close a segment of the West Side Road (#1000), just west of the Iverson Railroad Grade Trail, for a new road bridge installation over Holder Creek. 

Short-term, temporary closures of the west end of the Iverson Railroad Grade Trail may also be required during installation of the road bridge.

They go on to offer the following alternate routes:

Please use the Middle Tiger Trail and travel the West Side Road (#1000) to bypass the segment of the Tiger Mountain Trail closure. Be cautious and aware of truck and heavy equipment traffic on the West Side Road (#1000) Road.
