Re: Frazier Trailhead - correct Driving Directions

The only bad thing about us creating such good driving directions is that our chances of getting a campsite on summer weekends will be that less likely :(

Re: Frazier Trailhead - correct Driving Directions

Thanks for your comments... so will the wiki be updated with this info? Those existing directions are really confusing.

Frazier Trailhead - correct Driving Directions

This past weekend I decided to try Serene Lake again, and wanted to try it from the Frazier Trailhead. I used the directions provided in the link below, which turned out to be so vague and hard to follow that I ended up spending the first night miles away at the dead end of the Linny Creek Trail ( a...

Re: Eagle Creek to Tunnel falls 7/21/2012-7/22/2012

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Eagle Creek to 7.5 mile camp was my very first backpacking trip when I moved here in 1992. Like yourself, I was joined by a group of girls at my camp. Unlike yourself, I shared my large quantity of wine, scotch, and charcuterie, we went skinny dipping in eagle creek to...

Re: Help - Timberline Trail Elliot Creek Crossing need location

going CCW will probably be easier, at least from a direction finding standpoint. Start high on the trail at the shelter on cooper spur... DONT head downhill toward cloud cap, but rather head up a few hundred feet and cross the canyond there... the river is lower and easier to cross, and the angle of...

Re: Help - Timberline Trail Elliot Creek Crossing need location

I don't have a lot of time for a long trip report ( I'll try to do one later this week ) but here's the latest dope on Elliot Creek Crossing ( as of 8/7/10) If you are approaching Clockwise, the trail will end at a trail closure sign.. walk 20 feet to the edge of the cliff and look over. Then, turn ...

Re: I would like to climb Mt. Hood with an experienced group

you've gotten good advice. Skip Hood until next year.. and have a blast on Adams. I may be doing adams again on the 20-22nd, as I've only ever done it as a single day summit, which makes for a long day. I've always wanted to spend a night or two at the lunch counter. The only thing working against m...

Re: Help - Timberline Trail Elliot Creek Crossing need location

It's one of my favorites, and even though it's not really that remote, always makes me feel like I'm a million miles away from the world. I'm doing the wonderland trail sept 9-16, and this is just a warmup for that one... looking forward to both of them.. I love intermediate to high mileage days, en...

Re: Help - Timberline Trail Elliot Creek Crossing need location

I'm doing the TT again this weekend, and this time I'll take good pics and provide a GPS track so we can have some good documentation on this. I'm also going to dig up some "old" climbing rope and will fix it in place to replace the poly, but again, this is at your own risk and I personally wouldn't...
