Re: Eagle Creek Trail

same here, not a lot of western gorge hiking although I've done Angel's Rest many times.

The Tanner Butte Ridge and up and around to Eagle Creek is a good one. Eventually that will open which will be interesting.

Re: Arnaud from France

I just went to Ochoco National Forest and drove through Crooked River National Grassland. I haven't seen a lot of potential for Crooked River but maybe I just haven't looked right. I went to Mill Creek Wilderness in Ochoco. Good plan B for June. The "mountains" are tree covered with a few rock outcr...

Re: TKO spam

First world problem?

I'm more concerned that people can make unlimited, anonymous, tax free donations to politicians. And the polices of the government are oriented to satisfying those donors.

Re: Photos needed for the Field Guide

I used to do trail logs but I quit doing them, too much work, not enough value I think maybe that's a Steve from Dodge thing. I don't think he is doing field guide stuff anymore. There's probably some better way to do it, like a map with a line where the trail is and icons where the points are. This...

Re: TKO spam

TKO isn't really my thing, although I've been on TKO work parties. I prefer to bring my folding saw when I go out and clear off trails that I'm walking on. A lot of progress can be made just throwing branches off a trail. Sometimes there'll be a thicket of branches that's difficult to walk through, ...

Re: Central Cascades permit fees announced

My buddy got a ticket, except he actually had a NWFP pass in his window. He paid the ticket anyway - he's a rule follower :) Yeah, no need to read all 7 pages. Therapeutic for the posters though. I don't know what I'll do, probably just pay. If I don't and get stopped, should I say "I didn't know ab...

Re: Liz from Roseburg!

Welcome

I've been on the North Umpqua trail a little

I drive through Roseburg to the Rogue River and Trinity Alps - do a trip to each most years, excellent hikes if you want to drive a ways from Roseburg.

Re: 10/28/19 Flag Point Lookout Via High Prarie TH Loop

Thanks for the report and eightmile, underhill,... I haven't been there for several years. Must be time to re-visit. "First car in the High Prarie TH when I arrived at 4:45am and only car in the lot when I got back to the TH at 5:30pm. Didn't see anyone on the trails, nor on the roads to trails." Is...

Re: Foxglove/Primrose/etc? (Devil's Rest)

If you keep going maybe 1/4 mile past Angel's Rest, there's a nice campsite next to a creek.

There are way too many people on the Angel's Rest trail, but that spot a little further on would probably be good.

Other spots nearby, maybe more off the trail.
