Red Lake Trail

An impromptu run up the Clackamas Friday after work. Saw a turkey! taking its own sweet time to cross the road. Been camping and hiking here for 30 years and have never seen a turkey before. Found a camp site on 46 and set up a crummy old tent for the evening. No mosquitoes, which was nice. Heard an...

Dickey Creek

Backpacked into Big Slide Lake on the Dickey Creek trail this weekend. Road conditions: forest service posted that 6340 not recommended for passenger cars, and I believe it. There is a washout section before the Dickey Creek turnoff that might high center a low clearance vehicle. Trail conditions: l...

Re: Trinity Alps mid July - snow ok?

There is a Trinity Alps Facebook site. People have been reporting conditions for a while now. Its a forest service site. You can search for it that way.

Re: what if the permit box is empty?

Vaguely -- very vaguely -- I recall something about, write yourself a permit and sign it. On your own paper, carry it with you. I agree to follow all the rules and enforce them in my group, that kind of thing. Have no idea if it would work.

Re: what if the permit box is empty?

There were no permits in the box when a friend and I went to Green Lakes several years ago. We read the rules, even photographed the sign. We hiked in, set up camp in one of the designated sites, and right on cue, here comes a ranger. She acknowledged there were no permits in the box. It was late Se...

Re: Big Huckleberry Mountain from Grassy Knoll TH on August 5, 2018

Outdoor school taught about berries: "Blue and black always, red sometimes, white never." I've found it accurate so far.

Re: Huckleberries

The red berries appear to be red huckleberries, usually found at lower elevations. Blue huckleberries grow at higher elevations. Near Timothy, they are at peak. You can pick what you want but cannot take out of the forest, without a permit. Free harvest permit limits you to three gallons.
