      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

MRNP Gate Hours in the fall

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Firstly I apologize for posting this simple question, but I am not seeing it on the MRNP website. When do they stop leaving the gates open 24 hours? What are the shortened hours? In particular I will be going in through the Nisqually entrance in the next few weeks.

Thanks

They never close the gates at the Nisqually entrance. If you go in before the guard is there (7:00am?) and after the guard leaves (5:00pm?) you will not have to pay an entrance fee.

 

They close the gates at Longmire in the winter at 4:00 for uphill traffic. They open them dependant on weather.

In the winter it depends on the wether and who is running things that day. I don't waste my time going down there in the winter because I will have now idea when the gate will open if at all. Eavan if it doesn't snow the night before and the road is fine they may not open it till 9. If the right ranger is there it may be open at 6 or 7. Be prepared to do something on Rampart Ridge, the long way into Van Trump Park. Eavan if you call ahead the person on the phone will have no clue what time it will open.

How much is the entrance fee at the Nisqually gate? How much cash do I need to fork out to hike up to Muir?
