Re: Elk Killed by Tree?

Did the elk hear the tree falling? Did it make a noise if the elk is dead?

Cowhorn Mountain - 8-9-20

Earlier in the week I joined my Mom for a couple of hikes out of Sullivan's Southern Oregon book. I grew up riding snowmobiles around Diamond Lake and Crescent Lake every winter. Hiking up the prominent peaks that I spent plenty of time admiring as a kid has been a lot of fun. The PCT supply cache a...

Re: Salmon River from East Trailhead – 08-11-20

I've been contemplating doing the entire Salmon River with a car shuttle, is the east trailhead accessible with a passenger car? Thanks!

Toutle Trail near Sheep Canyon camp sites?

Hi Everyone, Thinking of doing a couple nights somewhere close to home. It's been awhile since I passed that section of the mountain and can't remember if there are any camp sites with access to clear water. I think I remember some sites where the Sheep Canyon Trail intersects with the Toutle Trail,...

Re: Camping spots on Castle Lake Trail?

This WTA trip report from 3 years ago seems to have answered my questions well enough. I can't imagine the trail conditions being improved from that point, so I'll be heading elsewhere.

Camping spots on Castle Lake Trail?

Hi Everybody,

I haven't been down the Castle Lake Trail on the west side of Saint Helens. It's too far for me to do as a day hike so I'm wondering if anyone has been down that way lately and if you remember there being camping spots near the end of the Castle Lake Trail?

Thanks!

PCT Huckleberry Mountain - Indian Mountain

Recovering from winter ankle surgery is going smoothly, I'll be trying my first over night trip this week. Checking untraveled trails off my maps one day at a time has kept me entertained so far this summer. On June 24th I parked at the Huckleberry Mountain Trailhead, just past the crowds at Lost La...

Re: PCT to Benson - 6/21/20

Did you notice if there were any campings spots on the plateau next to the PCT that weren't completely surrounded by burned out snags? I was on Indian Mountain Friday and it was hard to gauge just how burnt the east edge of the plateau is.

Thanks!
