Additional background info article from the Wenatchee World Link

For those of you who appreciate the Nason Ridge ski trails, an important opportunity to express your support for recreational access to this area (skiing, biking, hiking . . . ) is coming up on April 11.  Nearly the entire Nason Ridge trail system beyond Kahler Glen is on private land currently owned by Weyerhaeuser.  Weyerhaeuser has expressed an interest in selling the property, and in fact put the land up for auction sale a couple years ago.  Future recreational access is uncertain at this time.

A partnership including Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, Chelan County, The Trust for Public Land, The Nature Conservancy, and a steering committee of landowners, citizens, and recreationists are developing a “Community Lands Plan”.  Input is being sought regarding this land and similar “Checkerboard ownership” properties in Chelan County that might be up for sale in the near future.  “The vision articulated in the Community Lands Plan can guide future investments by public and private property owners and potentially lead to land management that will benefit local communities.” More Info
