Re: Is Goat Mountain hikable?

I believe it's the Cowlitz County highpoint, so it is popular with highpointers. There is a Summitpost entry by Don Nelson.

Re: Angry Mountain and P 5245, 080320

Thanks for sharing your explorations Don! Another one to add to my list. Love these quiet mountains in the Gifford. Will be visiting South Point LO site nearby on my tour next week.

Re: baby food

The question is why baby food? Packaging and convenience? Don't want to stop? Poor dentition?

There are high nutrition squeeze foods made for adult athletes on the go. I like Trailbutter:

Re: hammock camping on timberline trail

Plenty of trees, just a few stretches without. Much of the Timberline trail is actually well below the timberline.

Re: Mt. Hood in a day

There are quite a few sandy rocky stretches of trail. You probably have running gaiters like Dirty Girls, I recommend wearing them or you may be making some extra stops to dump out debris.

Re: Elkhorn tour 7/1-7/5 2020

Trip Report Continued: Day four was the funnest. We returned to the crest trail and continued north until we swung around to the north flank of Mt Ruth and dropped our packs. Fun scramble up on snow and granite rock. This mountain seems to sit right in the middle of the range and the views were just...

We hiked up the rugged road 2000...

Re: CottonwoodCanyon 7-1-2020 Lost Corral Trail

There is actually a spring in Esau Canyon, just beyond the Lost Corral and the Esau loop trail! It was running in early June. The waterfall in Rattlesnake Canyon was also still running.

Re: Forgotten Trail Along West Fork of the Hood River?

Last Fall, my friend and I found a section of old trail in that area too! It was just north of the image posted by Robin, and it goes from the Lake Branch (coming out of Lost Lake) northwesterly on what we dubbed "No Name Ridge" because it parallels No Name Creek. We left the trail at a road and cle...
