Walker Valley recreational area closed due to fire danger

Walker Valley recreational area closed due to fire danger

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has closed the Walker Valley off-road vehicle (ORV) recreational area due to fire danger. A twenty-four-acre wildfire burning on DNR lands east of Mt Vernon, in Skagit County, threatens the safety of those using the popular ORV trails.

The thirty six miles of trails were closed to public access on Sunday, October 7 and will remain closed until Monday, October 15. The wildfire, which started Saturday, is burning in an area recently logged, as well as older standing timber. The fire was 50 percent contained by Sunday evening. The fire has a high potential for renewed growth because of the heavily wooded conditions and the presence of slash piles.

“We are asking for everyone’s patience as we get this fire under control,” said Laurie Bergvall, State Lands Assistant Regional Manager for DNR “As soon as the fire conditions will allow safe return we will open up the Walker Valley ORV area.”

God grant me the serenity to accept the impossible trails I cannot crawl, courage to crawl the twisted trails I can, and the wisdom to keep the rubber side down.

Walker Valley has reopened.
