Re: FR 4614 gun city

Five of us hiked the Fanton Trail to Tumala Mtn today 6/25/2020. We didn't hear any shooting at all and there was no trash at the middle trailhead. The trail did have a few trees down but they were maneuverable. The rhodies were just starting to bloom up higher, but there were carpets of Avalanche L...

Idiot Creek Hike

RE: Elk Creek to Idiotville Rd. Hike FYI, the bridge is only temporary during the summer months. They remove it around October and put it back in around May. I talked with Randy at the Tillamook Forest Office in Forest Grove and those are the approximate dates he gave me. I tried to hike in early Oc...

Re: The Quiet Pledge: What to do about overcrowding

I've not posted a lot on this website, (not good with pictures or techie stuff) but I have read Many of your posts. I've enjoyed reading the off trails, long hikes, and all the other trail reports not in the popular hiking books. I have to say I'm sad that many are not posting these trips any more. ...

Re: SHAME, SHAME at Wildcat

Splintercat, Thanks for suggesting that I forward the pictures to the appropriate agency. This area seems to be unique as to who has jurisdiction. Maybe the Clackamas Dump Stoppers might be another agency for reporting. This is such a beautiful area, with great hikes, that I'm not about to give it u...

SHAME, SHAME at Wildcat

What is the mentality of people who do such destructive, wanton acts. And then to see the carvings on the memorial bench was just another blow. What kind of people live in this area anyway. OK, I vented! I led a group of hardy souls out of the heat and after we left the trailhead our mood lifted. Th...

Re: A couple of days on the Tanner Creek Trail

Not being familiar with this trail, where do you park? It sounds like a great alternative to a rainy windy day. Many thanks for your awesome work. It's tough that we have to go against "the rules" to keep trails open. Some of us did a little trail maintenance on Old Vista Ridge, but noticed they hav...

Re: Owl Point and beyond - 10/7/12

I was hiking up there the end of August and the signs were still there. I wanted to take down the sign at the turnoff that says you can't even maintain the trail or you'll be subject to a fine. The whole subject gets me upset, but we had a fine day anyway. We bushwhacked to Katsuk Point, what an inc...

Re: Another McNeil Report (with biting flies :^)! 2014/06/22

Loved the snow pictures, looks like you had a fun group! I really hate those biting flies, but hate to give up some hikes, so I went online and found a product made in Minnesota, where I figured they have worse insects than ours. The product is Buggspray and contains Deet, plus 2 other ingredients t...

Tire Mountain Wildflower Display

An easy hike in the Willamette National Forest with snowy peak views and loads of wildflowers. We went June 24th, and escaped the rain in the valley. Here are a few of the unusual flowers we found, plus there were at least forty more varieties of the more common, even Balsamroot was in bloom. Pictur...
