Fire and Ice Scenic Loop

Posted on 26th June 2013 at 16:11

A workshop is planned for later today down in Woodland, where local planners will be looking for your input on the proposed “Fire and Ice Scenic Loop” around Mount St. Helens. Jennifer Keene with the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments says that the Fire and Ice Scenic Loop is a 250-mile series of connected routes that circle the mountain, providing access to communities and recreation areas along the way. A Steering Committee of citizens and multiple agencies is now looking for a brainstorm of ideas, looking for ways to reintroduce visitors and local residents to the mountain. Keene says that they want to not only attract visitors from outside of the area, but they also want to entice local people to the mountain and the surrounding area. Keene says that they’re looking to develop a new “action-oriented” management plan for the Fire and Ice Scenic Loop, and your input is needed. Today’s workshop is set to run from 5 to 7 pm today at Woodland High School. Additional information is available on the COG website.
