Splitboarding Helens in January

Dear Mt. St Helens, I summited Helens this Winter with two friends who were keen on skinning up and snowboarding down. One of our biggest challenges was getting out of Portland. All of us had to rent gear, and every rental store had lines out the door. The weather was forecasted to be 50 degrees on ...

Mt. Adams 8/17

Dear Oregonians and Tourists, On Friday of last week, I drove up to the South Trail trailhead on Mt. Adams with a group of friends. We left Portland around 3pm and got to the trailhead around 6:30/7pm. Conditions for August 17th were looking pretty spectacular. We set up camp in one of the "campsite...

Devil's Peak/Lookout Overnight in the Winter

Devils Peak, A group of friends and I hiked the Cool Creek Trail to Devil’s Peak this past Winter. Unlike the Hunchback Mountain Loop - this trail is fairly gradual once you are past the initial ascent. The trailhead is a little hidden in the Winter because of the overgrowth and low traffic in the c...

Ran Wildwood! (Supported)

Dear Hikers, I recently ran the entirety of the Wildwood, which has always been on my bucket list. I agreed to run it with a buddy I met while running the Portland Trail Series, in spite of not running over 15 miles since my first/only marathon in 2014. I’m an avid hiker/backpacker/runner so I thoug...

Jordan Basin Goat Lake Loop

Hey Portland hikers, I backpacked the Jordan Basin-Goat Lake Loop in the Goat Rocks Wilderness over Labor Day weekend with a couple friends. We drove up Sunday morning and returned Monday evening with the idea that we would miss the long weekend traffic on Saturday. We embarked on our journey from t...

South Sister in August (Smokey)

Hey Oregon hikers, I summited South Sister during the smokey weeks of August about a month ago and it actually wasn’t too bad. To summit has been on my Oregon bucket list for some time now and I ended up hiking it on back to back weekends with Hood to Coast (also on my list). I will save everyone fr...

Elk Creek to Elk Mountain Loop

Hi fellow outdoor enthusiasts, Around mid August my girlfriend and I hiked Elk Mountain. I had intentions of doing the whole Elk and Kings loop but we got a late start and opted for the Elk Creek/Mountain loop. We started hiking from the Elk Creek Trailhead which is located just up the road from the...

North Oxbow Loop

Hey hikers, (TIP: Great and lightly populated river access) I hiked the 3.4 mile North Oxbow Loop this past weekend, and it was a nice last minute escape from Portland late in the afternoon on Sunday for my girlfriend and I. We were intending on hiking the Oxbow Loop but now that I am writing this, ...

Enchanted Valley; Olympic National Park

Hey folks, Long time no see, but here is a blog on my latest trip. On memorial day weekend I hiked up into the Enchanted Valley with a group of friends to start my backpacking season. We drove up to the park from Portland which took about 3.5 hours (exiting onto 101 just before Olympia). To get to t...
