Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

Many years ago I attempted to find the old trail that ran from the summit of Minto Mountain to Lizard Ridge and beyond where it would have intersected the Hunts Cove Trail. No luck, but the day was running short and I vowed to return...which I haven't. Steep, rugged, and isolated corner of the Mt. J...

Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

Matt Reeder (mattisnotfrench) has explored this area recently and that trail is still there, and fairly easy to follow as he details in his excellent book "100 Hikes in the Majestic Mount Jefferson Region". I hope to make it up there this summer, I'm not getting any younger and if I don't make it ha...

Re: Blacklock Point from Floras Lake 1-24-19

That's a neat stretch of coastline hiking. I think I've passed one hiker in the 3 times I've hiked that area.

Re: Niagara Falls (Oregon) - December 29

Haven't been there in 25 years, a neat short hike and very muddy as I recall from my last trip :)

Re: Henline Mountain Lookout w/snow

Very nice! Been up there a couple of times, but only in summer. Definitely a good workout with a nice view up top.

Re: Maxwell Butte Steeplechase

Great report and photos! One of the very few trails in the Detroit Ranger District I haven't hiked. I think I'll wait until the deadfalls are gone, ha! Thanks for sharing.

Re: Ice Lake and the Matterhorn July 29-31, 2018

Great pics, brings back memories of my trip there several years ago. Such a beautiful place. We chickened out on Sacajawea, the traverse from the summit of the Matterhorn required some scrambling around some gendarmes, and being somewhat exhausted, we called the view "good enough" from where we turn...

Re: Carl Lake & Table Lake - July 10-12, 2018

Very nice! I had hoped to get into Table Lake and The Table for the first time this summer, but an unplanned and unwanted hernia surgery will push this trip to next summer. I've made it to Carl Lake and Shirley Lake, but never beyond. Beautiful country, and glad you were able to enjoy it without the...
