Re: Looking for a good backpacking location

Badger Creek Wilderness is a good place to go during that time. A nice network of trails, not too busy,and there is Badger, Jean and Opal Lake. I know there are fish in Badger Lake, not sure about the latter two.

Looks like we'll be getting fewer balloons traveling from Tempe, AZ.

Re: Road to Grassy Knoll gated (from Carson)

There is a seasonal closure of the roads in the Triangle Pass area. On the Willard side the 6800 which leads up to Triangle Pass along Lost Creek has a gate stating the closure is from Dec 1-Apr 1 for wildlife habitat.

Re: 12/30/19 Epic End of year hike Table Mountain, WA 3rd Summit

Nice chunk of epic! Funny, I always go up Heartbreak and come down the Westway. Definitely prefer going up that boulder field. It's best with a few feet of snow. You say you started at Bonneville TH on highway 14, but that mileage of 9 1/2 miles RT to the summit of Table doesnt seem right from that ...

Re: Palmer Mill Rd/Primrose Path - Dec 7, 2018

Pablo's original post has a map at the end of it and states his loop route was 10 miles, 2900' EG. However this is the "off trail TR" forum, and it is not a standard route, just something he designed for himself on this particular day. The Palmer Mill site has been clear cut(several years ago), it i...

McNeil Peak, William O Douglas Wilderness Area

I did this hike last fall 10/23/18. I think it was rainy in Portland, and I wanted to do a little exploring east of White Pass. There was smoke from a fire somewhere, but it was otherwise a warm lovely fall day. Started from the Andy Creek TH, north of Rimrock Lake. This is outside the wilderness bo...

Re: NW Forest Pass misinformation, omission of America the Beautiful pass

I think most people who own and use the ATB pass know it covers NWFP sites.

Re: Ridgeline Hikes

Goat Island Mountain in MRNP has a wonderful ridgetop ramble. It's not sketchy, but the approach and descent on either ends of the ridge are offtrail scrambles. Many choices in the Wallowas, it's even referred to as the "Switzerland of Oregon". See for example that cool recent post from B2BB. My fav...
