The PCT remains closed between 242 and 20. Due to the recently expanded closure area around Mt Washington, the USFS has TERMINATED the current PCT DETOUR that was put in place just yesterday. In addition, the Sisters and McKenzie RD have decided not to provide another mapped and signed PCT reroute option at this time. This is due in part because of the potential for additional closure area modifications and the lack of options outside the current closure area. We will post Highway 20 and 242 trailheads with area maps, so hikers will have a general understanding of the surrounding area (this was requested by hikers). All reroute information that was placed at trailheads has been removed.
