Wygant Trail reborn and worth a visit.

Today (6/19/17) hiked the Wygant Trail and wonders of wonders, it has a rebirth. I’ve done it many times over the past 3-5 years and done some trailwork on sections and admired that done on rerouting, finding and clearing the old trail to the summit. But the problem has always been the 35-40 downed...

Re: a better Nesmith Ridge

We went up Nesmith Ridge yesterday (6/08) and it was as grueling as ever. Yes, Pablo is right - great tread/trail from the falls at Upper McCord to the bottom of the ridge. And yes, the ridge trail in great shape EXCEPT for some big trees down right across the trail - lots of them. We did a work-ar...

Nesmith Ridge – ready for winter workout

This week did a quick hike up Nesmith Ridge (good trail starts by log at Upper McCord Creek) and was surprised at how great shape the use –trail is in. Lots of good work has been done recently including some better switchbacks through the very steep section above 2,000ft. Nice work folks. This is a ...

Wauna Point Trail - great trail work

Took the non-rain day to explore up Tanner Butte Trail and then over and down to the diving board at Wauna Point. The Tanner Trail is in great shape all the way to the old Wilderness Signage just past the Wauna Point cut-off. Great work n removing logs as noted by other. The Wauna Point trail can be...

Table Mountain - bridge over outlet to Carpenter Lake - new

Was doing some hiking up in the Table Mountain area today and saw that a lot of trail work has been done on the Dick Thomas trail coming up from the Bonneville Hot Springs Resort. Yes, the start of the trail has a ton of blackberries and they are troublesome and growing strong so it looks like someo...

McNeil Point open for Visitors

Went up to McNeil Point yesterday - what views. The trail from Top Spur is about 90% snow free. Only a little before the 'climber's' trail up the ridge and there are good boot steps. Melted out around the Shelter and can easily do the ridge up above the shelter when is without snow enough to make it...

Re: Up & Over Cook Hill 05/12/13

Good report and pictures - yes, there was a lot of trail work done up there late last fall and nice to see it is all holding together. The views from those meadows on the summit of Cook are much, much better than Dog - to the north, the whole of the Volcanoes line up and flowers to boot. You can con...

Re: Ruckel Ridge Loop 3/31/13

Very timely and good report - thanks - I'm heading up there this weekend. BTW - once on the plateau - actually on both sides of the creek, there is some orange spray on the trees and it is hard to see but if you look very closely, you can find it and it does follow the actual way you want t go - aga...
