Humbug Mountain (Coast Range in Clatsop County)

My kids helped me make this video of the hike we did on MLK day up to Humbug Mountain. This is the Humbug Mountain just south of Saddle Mountain of Highway 26 on the way to Seaside. It offered cool views of four mountains, fantastic views of the coast range all the way out to the Pacific Ocean, and ...

Re: Twin Lakes water level/swimming quality?

I was up there a few weeks ago. I didn't swim, but the water looked very clear. It's quite deep and we're thinking about heading back up there to swim sometime this summer. I believe that on hot days you're going to have big crowds, especially on the weekends.

Re: 2017 Mosquito thread?

Any reports for the Roaring River area (Rock Lakes, Serene Lake)? My past experience up there has been that they're awful in July and very tolerable by around August, but I know the snow melted a lot later this year.

Re: Snow in Gorge or Roaring River area

Which map did you consult? It looked like one showed snow and the other didn't- wasn't sure which one to believe.

Re: Snow in Gorge or Roaring River area

I was thinking of doing the Serene Lake loop up there, but come via Hideaway Lake/Shellrock Lake.

Snow in Gorge or Roaring River area

Planning a backpacking trip with the kids this coming weekend. Does anybody know what the snow level is in the Roaring River Wilderness? My alternate would be Eagle Creek, maybe do the loop with Tanner. I read a report that it was clear, but I wanted to make sure that the Eagle Creek trail is clear ...

Re: Sources for old forest service maps

caltopo has two historical map layers you can turn on.... I'm familiar with Caltopo, but never seen this feature. Do you have to be a paid subscriber to see the historical map layers? If not could you give me a hint on how to find them? In the Base Layer dropdown (upper-right)... Capture.JPG Awesom...

Sources for old forest service maps

I hope this topic hasn't been covered too many times before, but I couldn't find anything in my search of the site. I'm really interested in finding older versions of maps, particularly of the Mt Hood National Forest area. I'm fascinated with seeing where old trails existed or trying to find access ...
