Re: Timberline Trail section hiking: Cloud Cap to Newton Creek and back 7/20/19

Admittedly it's a value judgement, but the advent of trail running and the seemingly large number of participants somehow detracts from the "wilderness experience", at least for me and from a backpacker's perspective. I wonder if the focused attention to the trail (required to avoid a turned ankle ...

Re: Rainy - Whatum trail #409

I hiked the RW trail in early June, between the Anthill and Herman Cutoff trails. The tread was in good condition and wide enough that no encroaching plants were an issue (it's an old road bed). There were a good number of logs down across the trail, but all were easily stepped over. I will say that...

Re: Cooper Spur via Tilly Jane Ski Trail

Thank you for the kind words! Hopefully one day the USFS or a volunteer crew resurrects the 643A trail; it has some amazing scenery!

Re: Timberline Trail - nighttime loop 8/2/19 - cougar stalking

Glad you're OK after the cougar encounter! Doing the entire trail in one day is one of my long-term goals as well, and sorry that the backpackers around didn't seem to understand. I also find I can't eat anything substantial during a hike/run, even though I know I'm super hungry. Glad I'm not the on...

Re: Timberline Trail 7/21 - 7/25 2019

Adding my name to the "thank you" list!

How was the Eliot crossing in particular? I heard from people on the trail last week near Cooper Spur that Eliot was the hardest of the crossings they encountered. Any other crossings that posed special difficulties while rock-hopping?

Re: Cooper Spur via Tilly Jane Ski Trail

Looks good to me. Thank you!

Seems it would be easier to have editing permissions. I have experience on Wikipedia, so have used the language before and know how to work a wiki. Is there a "minimum tenure", so to speak, for requesting them/do you know the process?

Re: Cooper Spur via Tilly Jane Ski Trail

Thank you! Looks good to me (apart from what appears to be extra whitespace at the top of the trailhead page), and maybe for consistency with the other pages the hike page should be moved to "Cooper Spur via Tilly Jane Ski Trail Hike"? But those are minor quibbles. :) I know when I was new to the fi...
