FYI, almost all the dead downed trees through the Pole Creek Burn from Three Creek Lakes to the Green Lakes Trail turnoff are cut or removed. Northward of th...

Re: Trail around three sisters questions

The route between Middle and South Sister is, for the most part, a trail. Most, if not all, of the snow will be melted by September. No climbing or handholds required. It is steep and rocky in many places. It is highly advised to never camp in a burned area anywhere a dead standing tree can fall on ...

Re: Timberline Trail 25-27

Went up to Mississippi Head via Split Rock again last Friday (6/26/20). Lots of now melted since the previous Friday, but still lots of snow between Timberline Lodge and ZZ overlook. Lots of snow in Paradise Park. That means the north side of Hood will have miles and miles of snow on the trail. Cert...

Re: Central Cascades permit fees announced

Was there any mention about enforcement or fines for not complying? Are there going to be rangers at every trailhead and all through each wilderness? What if I enter from a place that is not a trailhead, like bushwhacking off-trail from a road? Would that be considered non-compliance? What if the wh...

Re: Need Advice on Wallowa Trip

1. Definitely less people after Labor Day. Weekdays even less.
2. Eagle Cap. Right in the center of the wilderness. Easiest of them all.
3. Probably enough trees.
4. The upper lakes in the basin, of course. The view from Glacier Pass. Same for Polaris Pass. The East/West Wallowa River loop is classic.
