Re: Wildflower hike suggestions from Timberline Lodge?

From the lodge, Paradise Park is definitely your best bet. If you're comfortable with off-trail alpine terrain, consider making it a loop by going up around the top of Zigzag Canyon. As for timing, August is usually the surest bet for flowers in Paradise Park. However, if it continues to be a low sn...

Re: Is Alltrails suitable enough for route planning?

Michael ("aiwetir") and I have been fixing up a lot of the local trails on OpenStreetMap, using Strava's infallible heatmap as the source. So any mapping app/site that uses OSM data will probably be pretty good. (And feel free to ask us whether we've tackled any specific trail yet.)

Re: Does Mirror Lake Trailhead Require a Sno-Park Pass?

It didn't as of mid-November when I went... but it's hard to see how they could NOT require one eventually, given that Skibowl does.

Re: Mt. Hebo Hike -01/01/19

What's the boards opinion in general on the amount of wildlife seen on Oregon trails (specifically in the Oregon Cascades / Mt Hood)? Why does it seem like there's so much less than Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Washington, etc? Or is it just me?! It's not just you; we're pretty lacking in macrofauna...

Cool, thanks. I usually switch over to biking some time in May, but I'll have to note some spots where I see these and return later and try to catch them blooming.
Do you ever bike up Larch Mountain Road? I bet there's some along there.

Re: Wild rhododendrons?

Our native Rhododendron macrophyllum is one of the parents of some cultivated rhododendrons, but remember that garden plants are almost always bred to have as many flowers as possible. The wild ones are much sprawlier. They bloom sometime between May and July, depending on conditions and the specifi...

There are still a few that elude me right now, like a public land layer with transparent private land.
CalTopo has one of those.
