Re: Deschutes River day hike

Sounds like a good day. Did you get a really good look at your creatures? From your photo and the behavior you're describing, they may have been otters not beavers.

Rogers Peak 11-20-20

At 3,706 feet, Rogers Peak is the highest summit in the northern Coast Range of Oregon as well as the high point of Tillamook County. It’s also on private land, but to their credit Hampton Lumber allows public access by foot or on horseback. I drove up Gilmore Creek Road from the West Fork North For...

Re: "Oh Boy Forest Camp" and also alternate Round Lake trail on map

Do you have any idea why there was a phone line between Round Lake and the Rho Ridge trail? I haven't seen any explanation. Obviously the line was there before the road was built. My best guess is that, back in the day when the whole area was open to grazing, there may have been some kind of monito...

Re: "Oh Boy Forest Camp" and also alternate Round Lake trail on map

Also, I saw there may have been a trail down to Round Lake from NF-6355. You can pick up this trail from the east end of Round Lake, where it's still obvious, but then it sort of disappears in clearcuts. It connected with the Rho Ridge Trail, which used to be the Skyline Trail, which used to be the...

Falls Creek Trail and nearby points 11-11-20

Falls Creek Trail from Falls Creek Horse Camp I spent a couple of different days exploring the Falls Creek Trail recently. First, I hiked a section that I had never done, from Falls Creek Horse Camp down to the big swamp where Falls and Black creeks come together east of Falls Creek Falls. This tra...

Re: Herman Creek trees down

Go for it, Jerry!

Does this mean the regular Herman Creek Trailhead is open again? The USFS website says it is still closed . . .

Re: Will the Nesmith point trail ever reopen?

The FS asked TKO to look at Nesmith Point in the fall before COVID, meaning it was next on their list. I'm not really in the loop, but COVID will have set all these efforts back by quite a bit although there are work parties out there, mainly fixing up trails that had been fixed and then allowed to ...
