The road to Olympic National Park's most popular destination -- snow-topped Hurricane Ridge -- will be closed for all of April so the park can fix roads elsewhere.

And also starting in April, the park's visitor station in Forks will be closed, and the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center's daily operation will be cut to five days a week.

A strained budget is forcing park Superintendent Bill Laitner and his staff to shift resources starting in April, he said Wednesday.

But the road closure and visitor center cutbacks are no April Fool's joke to North Olympic Peninsula tourism officials, who fear a business dropoff during the period.

Nearly 8,000 people visited the Ridge last April.

Sabino Canyon will remain closed until mountain lions no longer are a substantial, immediate threat to people, Coronado National Forest officials said yesterday.
Despite complaints from local environmental activists, Forest Service officials will track and kill the animals, also known as cougars, which have been stalking visitors in recent days, Santa Catalina District Ranger Larry Raley said.
Trackers will use dogs to follow the scent of the cougars and drive them up trees, where trackers will shoot the cougars, said Arizona Game & Fish spokesman Tom Whetten.
He said the department, which is responsible for the state's wildlife, will not reveal when trackers are sent into Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, because protesters might try to disrupt the hunt.
Visitors to Sabino Canyon were turned away at the gates yesterday, Raley said, and no one has caused problems.

LAKE WENATCHEE, Wash. – Hikers traveling the Pacific Crest Trail between Mexico and Canada may find the toughest going in central Washington this summer.




KING5.com
Pacific Crest Trail
A flood-ravaged, 39-mile section of the route will be rerouted along steep, rocky and eroded trails northwest of Lake Wenatchee.

The U.S. Forest Service is recommending that only highly skilled hikers use the detour, which may be impassible if rivers are running too high.

The route along five trails and a dirt Forest Service road in the Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee Ranger Districts is considered too difficult for horses.

About 300 people a year hike the entire 2,650-mile-long trail, most of them starting at the Mexican border in the spring and ending at the Canadian border in the fall. Thousands more hike sections of the trail each year.
