Deschutes River from Macks Canyon Hike

Hiked the Deschutes River from Macks Canyon to Fall Canyon Camp. The trail was steep but short through the canyons previously crossed by trestles. Flowers were blooming, but not abundant. We saw many animals, deer directly across from our camp at dusk, bighorn sheep, a coyote, a dead skunk, and many...

Kalama River Falls from Kalama Horse Camp

Headed up to the Kalama Horse Camp and hiked out and back to the Kalama River Falls. Hiked ~9.5 miles with 900 ft. elevation change. Only a couple patches of snow on the trail, close to the trailhead. We briefly checked out the Toutle trail, which was mostly snow-covered. The Kalama Horse Camp is cl...

Re: North Umpqua River

Did not need chains last Monday and we were driving a 2WD van. New snow fell Sat. night. We drove 138 from 97 to I5, the road was plowed and cindered.

North Umpqua River

Took a short road trip south and drove back along the North Umpqua River, checking out some waterfalls. First time in that area. I'd love to spend more time in southern Oregon.

Hager Mountain Lookout

Hiked up to Hager Mountain Lookout on a very cold and windy day. Unfortunately, views were limited due to the weather, but recent snow covered the trail and it was quite beautiful. Only an inch or two of new snow covered the trail at the start of the hike. We carried snowshoes, but only used microsp...

Rock Wall at Oneonta and Gorge 400

On a recent hike I noticed the rock wall along the Gorge 400 trail near the junction with the Oneonta trail. It is mentioned here on Oregon Hikers. I am wondering if anyone has any information on the history of the wall?

Clear Lake Snowshoe

Picturesque, fun snowshoe around Clear Lake from the Skyline Snopark . First time at this snopark, it accommodates snowmobiles and has a warming shelter, built by a snowmobile group. Beautiful, sunny day, but very windy. We walked near the lake, only occasionally on the road, except to get to the la...

White River Snopark Yellowjacket Snowshoe

Snowshoed part of the Yellowjacket Trail from White River Snopark past the Salmon River crossing last Sunday. The parking lot was mostly empty when we started at about 9:30 am but packed with sledders upon return. Didn't see any other snowshoers or skiers all day. We used microspikes starting out bu...

Re: Outdoor Recreation Bill

Thank you for posting about this bill. I quickly scanned through the bill and unfortunately, don't see much benefit to hikers. There is one line about "shall increase opportunities for nonmotorized and motorized access and experiences on Federal Land".
