Re: Rockpile Lake Trail (#4005)- conditions??

Don’t blame the forest service. Blame the politicians who don’t fund the forest service sufficiently.

Re: Looking for a 2-night backpack in July

Thanks, everybody! As luck would have it, my wife is able to join me. We’re planning to get up into Paradise Park, either via Timberline Lodge, or via the Paradise Park trail if the blowdowns aren’t too bad.

I’ll circle back next week to report out.

Looking for a 2-night backpack in July

Hi all, I’m from back east (grew up in Pennsylvania, live outside DC now). Moderate amount of camping experience but I don’t usually enjoy really going for big miles (8-12 miles in a day usually feels about right, depending on how much elevation I’m gaining). The goal is mostly to be out in the wood...
