Re: Superstitions - Treasure Island

Don't think my car would make it down any messed up roads, but I'm building a network here so I do know of one jeep owner... may have to hit 'em up! The road to Brown's Peak is rough in places, but what makes it really horrible is its length: 18 miles one way, and it takes a full hour. If you go al...

Re: Superstitions - Treasure Island

I did a few hikes east of Phoenix back when a friend of mine lived in Scottsdale. Have you been to La Barge Canyon yet? There are some fun non-dangerous off-trail opportunities in there.

Also, Brown's Peak is fun if you're into scrambling, but the drive to the trailhead is horrific.

Re: COVID-19: Stay safe, stay home

Call me crazy (and it would be valid) to observe this.. but why can TKO do this but couldn't on the central cascades? Hear, hear. I agree with TKO's Covid-19 position, so I don't intend to criticize its action . But TKO's inaction on the Central Cascades plan is galling and inconsistent with its ow...

Re: Oregon State Parks closing to all use (+ add'l closures)

As of 3/26, ODFW lands (many of which require a parking permit) are still open.

However, I imagine that might change soon.

Klickitat County may not have a Dog Mtn
They do have Coyote Wall, Catherine Creek, and Dalles Mountain Ranch -- all of which get most of their visitors from outside the county.

Re: Covid-19

Now they're threatening to jail/fine people for going out and hiking in the outdoors because of Coronavirus? Clown shoes. Skamania County Sheriff's Dept is 16 full time deputies. They don't want you there. It doesn't matter whether it's practically enforceable; if you go, you're just being a jerk.

Re: Covid-19

So then that includes all of Indian Heaven, Trapper Creek, Falls Creek Falls, the west side of Mt Adams, Lewis River, etc. I'm guessing that neighboring counties will follow soon. I wonder. Skamania County suffers from proximity to Portland, and the VAST majority of the people hiking there are not ...
