The north approach lands have been owned by Longview Fibre for quite a few years. Longview Fibre contracts out logging work in the area. Oliving Corporation is not the land owner.
Sadly, Longview has recently been sold to Weyerhaeuser.
Is that better or worse, for people looking to get access to privately-owned forest lands?
I know some hikers who have thought Longview was very difficult to deal with.
