Sweeping plan would limit entry to Mount Jefferson, Three Sisters, other Oregon wilderness areas

A sharp increase in crowds — and environmental damage that’s followed — has led the agency to propose major changes to the way people access Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington, Three Sisters, Waldo Lake and Diamond Peak wilderness areas.
