Re: Clackamas River trail

Thanks for all the good information. I'm like a lot of hikers trying to find good trails that aren't in the Gorge. Is it Saturday yet?! :lol:

Clackamas River trail

Anyone been on this trail lately? I've never been there. I was thinking of going Saturday starting from Indian Henry TH. How's the road for a Yaris? I am assuming no snow. Thanks for any info.

Re: Wind River Mts. 9.7-9.13 2017

Thanks for your replies. I almost went to the Brewing Pub but went to a Mexican restaurant instead. It was noisy and a little crowded with delicious food. After 7 days on trail noisy and crowded was a good thing. I think if you use the CDT you can make a huge variety of different loops. If you facto...

Wind River Mts. 9.7-9.13 2017

I've been back a little over a week so I thought I would post a TR. I took off on this trip early on the morning that the Eagle Creek fire started. My first stop was a 4 day tune-up trip in the Wallowas. When I came out from that trip I was stunned/freaked out to hear about the fire. I almost came h...

Re: Wind Rivers Eclipse

Thanks for the information. The FS website says to use an approved hard container for food storage which was news to me. The last time I was in the Winds I used my old green Ursack. I'll give them a call this week. I plan on going easy the first few days for the altitude. I plan on spreading the dri...

Re: Wind Rivers Eclipse

Sounds like an awesome trip. I haven't been to the Winds in years, something I plan to correct in the second week of September. How was the drive? 900'ish miles is a long haul. How did you store your food? Eagerly awaiting your TR. :D

Gnarl Ridge

Has anyone gone to Gnarl Ridge from Hood River Meadows TH lately? Any current info on trail conditions and such would be appreciated. Heading up Sunday, hopefully early-ish, if anyone is interested in hiking along, not too fast with picture breaks. Thanks.

Edit: Oh yeah, how is the bug situation?

Re: Wyeth conditions?

Thanks for all the good information. This could be a good time to dust off the snowshoes.
