Re: The Memaloose Hills and Social Media

This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I feel like this discussion is pretty one-sided so another viewpoint might shake things up. This sounds a lot like toxic gate-keeping to me. "I found this place a long time ago, and now I'm claiming it as mine. Only the special people I deem worthy may e...

Re: April 18/19 Backpacking Trip...any suggestions?

There's the Wilson River Traverse https://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Wilson_River_Traverse_Hike , but that's the only one I'm aware of. The Coast range up North is such a patchwork of public and private land that it's really hard to put together a multi-day trip without trespassing. You'd be a...

Re: April 18/19 Backpacking Trip...any suggestions?

The Deschutes isn't that far actually. I mean, it is to the section of the river by Bend, but the River flows North into the Columbia and there's a trail head just past the Dalles. It's only about an hour and a half drive from Portland. If you wouldn't mind the desert rather than the forest it's a g...

Keep Oregon Green - Smokey the Bear License Plate

Keep Oregon Green is working with the DMV to create a Smokey the Bear License Plate. If 3,000 people buy vouchers it'll become a reality. I thought some folks here might be interested. More details here: http://keeporegongreen.com/smokey-bear-license-plate/

Re: Vandalism on Palmateer Trail #482

I was going to say I hiked Boulder Lakes this last Saturday and saw similar markings, but Cheryl beat me to it. Also there were a lot of hunters up there so be safe and wear hunter orange when hiking this time of year.

Nice trip report. I've been meaning to check this trail out. Those pink flowers are Bitter-root btw.

Re: Eagle Creek Clackamas Access?

Yes, the road is open. I did this a few weeks ago. The loggers didn't regrade the road and there are some huge dips. We got through in a subaru but it might be harder after some days of rain. The trail is in good shape. Do you think after two weeks of hot, dry weather I might be able to make it in ...

Re: Harvey Road Trailhead

That's okay. It just means that it's less likely I'll run into a ton of people on my trip.

Re: Harvey Road Trailhead

Thanks for scouting! As my car is tiny I don't think I should brave that road. I guess I'll be hiking in from the Douglas Trailhead. I found out from this trip report that it adds ~4.7 miles (depending on how far it is from the Harvey Road TH to the Douglas-Eagle Creek Junction): http://www.oregonhi...
