Other Agencies

  • Washington State Department of Natural Resources
    • According to "While the 10 PCT miles that cross Washington State Department of Natural Resources lands near the Gorge are officially managed by the U.S. Forest Service, the Washington State DNR works with PCTA and the Forest Service when issues arise concerning the surrounding lands. These lands are managed primarily for timber revenue, but because the Washington State DNR recognizes the public value of the PCT, they strive to minimize negative impacts that their timber management practices might have on trail users."
  • Warm Springs Indian Reservation
    • According to "[T]he 25 PCT miles that cross the Warm Springs Indian Reservation between Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson are officially managed by the U.S. Forest Service. The Tribes work with PCTA and the Forest Service when issues arise concerning the surrounding lands. In recent years these partners have also collaborated on programs such as a Warm Springs PCT Youth Crew."


Note: The PCTA has updated the following 'discover-the-trail/geography/' pages on to remove the land management agency info, but the old pages are still available via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.
