Revised Weekday Road/Trail Closures for Port Gamble Park
The roads leading into the area surrounding Hope, ET, and Ranger will be closed to recreational use on weekdays until logging is finished. Yellow and Orange are the closed roads and logging areas. The closure has been expanded because the initial closure boundaries were ignored and people were not yielding to vehicular traffic on the roads. This is creates safety concerns. One person was actually hit by a low boy, but is thankfully ok. The closure is scheduled through January but Pope has consistently finished early by as much as a month. During the closures access to the park should be made through the South end via Stottlemeyer or Port Gamble Rd gate. You will still be able to go North from the Bayview Parking area. South end via Stottlemeyer or Port Gamble Rd gate.
