Lost Mountain Land Exchange

Proposed Lost Mountain Land Exchange (#86-102692)
DNR desires to reposition a parcel of state trust land located southwest of Sequim in Clallam County to increase ease of access and make state lands more efficient to manage. This exchange will consolidate state trust lands to improve management efficiency, enhance road access, and enhance marketing options for trust revenue. DNR will trade up to approximately 7 acres of trust land and DNR will receive up to approximately 7 acres of Gates family property.   
The exchange will:
  • Consolidate state trust lands in Clallam County to increase operational efficiency. 
  • Enhance the sustainability of working trust landscapes to provide for future generations.
This exchange involves one trust, the State Forest Land Trust, which supports local services within Clallam County. All exchange lands are located in Clallam County.
