Re: Nash Lake

I was thinking I would plan a trip there later in the year, to find a sweet spot between bugs and cold weather...if that's even possible! :lol: Were there a lot of people around that lake in particular?

15 mile creek campground...fishing?

I saw on my map of Mt Hood NF that fishing is allowed at Fifteen Mile Creek campground. Has anyone fished there before with any success? I am not finding much online about fishing there.

Re: Lookout Mountain Rd to High Prairie TH

I tried calling the ranger's station earlier today and got their voicemail. I'll try again tomorrow. Do you have any idea in general if this area is usually still snowbound in mid june?

Lookout Mountain Rd to High Prairie TH

Does anyone know the status of Lookout Mountain road coming from Brooks Meadow NF-44? According to the NF website, lookout mountain Rd was closed as of 4/1. However, I'm not sure how up to date this is. Is it currently open?

Windy at Badger Lake

I hiked to badger lake yesterday from the Divide Trail. It wasn't windy on the trail, but it was really windy down by the lake. The wind almost took my sandwich. Is it often windy through that valley? I was kind of scoping out the lake as a potential camping spot.
