Kate Creek Ski Trail #620

Does anyone know if the Kate Creek Ski Trail is owned by Teacup Nordic? It's not part of the resort map on the website, but there doesn't seem to be a parking area for it either.

Re: Wagon Road Trail #642

Oh okay, got it. Thanks!

The FS website said that the trail is best done downhill on skis, so I thought that mean the TH would be accessible.

Re: Wagon Road Trail #642

The answer depends on how strong a skiier you are! Is that the Weldon Wagon Road or the Santiam Wagon road or some other wagon road you are referring to? I've skiied two stretches of the Santiam Wagon road and it is pretty gentle. Fun tour. It's this wagon road trail, starts at Cloud Cap: wagon roa...

Wagon Road Trail #642

We finally bought our own XC skis for this year. I was researching new places to try later this season, and found the Wagon Road Trail on the FS website. I thought it might make a good shuttle XC ski trail, since it's all downhill. However, I was wondering if it's too steep for XC skis? Looks like a...

Jean Lake 10/3-10/4

For (probably) our last fishing trip of the season, we went hiked down to Jean Lake and camped there. We had the place to ourselves for most of the day on Saturday. I noticed there are some logs sunk into the ground near the lake, not far from the inlet. I did not see these the last time we were her...

Bennett Pass/Jean Lake area conditions?

Has anyone been on Bennett pass since that part of the national forest reopened? My boyfriend and I were hoping to get in one last fishing trip to Jean Lake this weekend before the snow starts. Our truck can handle the road just fine, but not downed trees. I was wondering if the wind storm has made ...

Re: Explosion sounds near South Sister 9/1

Hard to say, there was a lot of haze from the wildfires in California.

Explosion sounds near South Sister 9/1

While camped on the PCT near South Sister on 9/1, I heard a series of explosions coming from up on the mountain. It was not gunfire. The explosions sounded timed, almost evenly spaced. Definitely not the time of year for avalanche control, I would think. Not much snow to be seen... IMG_20200831_1856...

Re: Google review of Yapoah lake

I know, right? Sometimes I read reviews of natural areas for the entertainment. So many people write bad reviews about things like the weather or lack of wildlife, as if someone might read it and care. Or as if anyone has CONTROL over such things.
