Re: Americans - Please Wake Up

Regardless of all the debates against over-reaction vs not an over-reaction I still see no benefit whatsoever to closing forests, beaches, hiking trails. They should all be open & people must have the right to govern themselves staying a few feet apart just like everywhere else I go in Portland........

Re: Americans - Please Wake Up

It seems people do not agree with me. :) Well......I could be persuaded, but I'm just not understanding how taking our rights away....specifically talking about forest & beach access helps anything at all; in fact I hope you could also understand how it may even be more harmful than helpful. Are you...

Americans - Please Wake Up

I have no idea what to do about this, but I can't believe Americans have become so passive & weak & misinformed by the news outlets that we are letting the government control us like this. You can't go the beach. You can't go hiking. It's a sunny 85 degree Saturday. Are you kidding me? The restricti...

Confused - What is Open or Allowed during Covid Quarantine?

Wondering what is open if I want to hike or bike in a forest. Sounds like parking at all trailheads in Mt Hood or Gifford Pinchot are closed to prevent people clustering in one area. But I read you can park somewhere else & then ride your bike to a trailhead. Is that legal right now? Can you go for ...

Re: Multnomah Falls - Confused How to Visit

I meant just a quick visit. Putz around the lodge & stare at the water. Continue on my way to some trails that are open.

Multnomah Falls - Confused How to Visit

I can't believe it's gotten so crowded that I no longer understand the logistics of going to Multnomah Falls. I used to just go there for a quick hike or stop there on my way from Portland to Hood River. Assuming the parking lot is full how do I go about visiting nowadays: I see signs about a shuttl...

Re: Search for lost hiker still going on

How many people have gone missing while hiking in the gorge? Recently I know of this girl & Alissa McCrann. I just wonder because I hike in the gorge a lot, and it seems like it would be very difficult to get permanently lost out there. It's so steep that it's difficult to wander off the trail, and ...
