S-1000 Road Closure

Post by kathyc » November 6th, 2016, 8:28 am

The field guide directions to the North Siouxon Trailhead are from the north, but we went in from the south. S-1000 is washed out at the junction with S-1130. Continuing on Healy Road (54) another ~1.8 miles past the S-1000 junction there is a connector road on the left (number?) This is shown on the WA DNR map, although the map does not show the road closure.

Google maps shows the "new" route. :)
(Don't know if this is the proper forum for a road report.)

That end of S1000 has been washed out for several years now. I wish that the DNR would update their map, it wouldn't take but a couple of minutes to add a note there. Glad you found the connector.

For those not familiar with this road, it is the second left turn possible after crossing Canyon Creek, and has a big yellow gate, that I have never seen closed. I suppose it is there to enforce closures because of extreme fire danger.
There is no shortcut to anyplace worth going to.

PM me about the soon to be released:

If anyone wants to send me detailed directions from the south, I can put them in the Field Guide. I'm sticking with directions from the north because that's the sure thing.
