Keep the I-90 corridor and the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road safe

From the WTA

Your Voice is Needed to Extend the Target Shooting Ban 


The Snoqualmie Ranger District has proposed implementing a permanent ban on target shooting on a swath of land paralleling the I-90 corridor and the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road. Please contact them and let them know that you support this effort to make our trails safer. Comments are due by June 24.

Talking Points:

  • I support the proposed closure of this popular recreation area to target shooting. It is an important step in reclaiming the Middle Fork for hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers.
  • This safety measure can only be successful if it is met by a commitment to improve enforcement in these wildland-urban interface areas.
  • If you've had a personal encounter with inappropriate shooting on a trail please include that experience in your comments.
