Ecola Point to Indian Beach Trail Open

Hiked from Cannon Beach to Indian Beach in Ecola Park and found the trail from Ecola Point to Indian Beach to be open and significantly rerouted. Don't know when the reroute was completed and the trail officially reopened. The new route adds about 0.9 mile and elevation gain. The trail heads east to...

Wildcat Mountain Road closed to New McIntryre Trail

Tried to drive to the New McIntryre Trailhead on Nov. 5 and found it gated at the junction with the road to the Douglas TH (by the quarry). Seemed early, so I called the forest service and was told it is gated during hunting season and then kept locked over the winter. Just FYI as I could not find W...

Re: Long time reader, first time poster

My friends and I just use Google Drive, share docs and sheets with edit privileges. Also use Gaia to create routes to determine mileage (seems to get the mileage right, not sure of elevation gain). Don't know of any more specialized apps or sites to use.

Re: Old Skyline Trail (Lake Branch segment) – 07-02-20

I hiked this section of the Old Skyline in October (and should have read this post first because I looked for the Lake Branch Trail shown on Nat Geo and could not find it). I hiked along the Old Skyline from Lost Lake Butte, crossed Lost Lake Road, and walked along closed FR-13 until FR-13 crossed t...

Backpacked from Falls Creek Horse Camp to Indian Racetrack, up to Red Mountain, north on the CCT and back down the PCT after camping at Tombstone Lake at the end of Sept. We had great views from Red Mountain all around. The following day smoke had moved north blocking views of the peaks so we lucked...

Little Wildhorse Lake (Steens)

On a road trip in southeast Oregon we walked up to the Steens Mountain high point (up a road to radio towers) and then to Little Wildhorse Lake and some cross country hiking toward Big Indian Gorge. Amazing terrain and views, although obscured by smoke.
