Mount Si, LIttle Si trails still closed as snow delays work

Mount Si and Little Si trailheads and trails will remain closed as investigators continue to look into a plane crash in the area last week. Snow has slowed the work, which continues this week.

On Feb. 15, a single-engine airplane crashed in the Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area (NRCA), which is managed by DNR and is a popular hiking destination in eastern King County.

Immediately after the crash, DNR closed access to the area to better help teams from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and other agencies conduct their investigation.

DNR will provide updates on the status of the Mount Si area on the agency’s web site.
