Re: Aldrich Butte/Table Mountain access update?

I would like to know the same. I have been driving and exploring this area for sometime, looking for a closer starting point.

2021-11-17 Eagle Creek - Falls

The water flow at Eagle Creek is very heavy, creating a lot of temporary falls in addition to the regulars. There were about 15-20 trees down on the trail, but all were passable. Only found a few minor slides on the trail. IMG_1953.JPG We intended to go to Tunnel Falls but the crossing at McCoy cree...

Re: Tumalo Mt versus Misery Ridge/Smith Rock

Smith Rock with the amazing, colors of the rocks. One of my favorite places in the Pacific NW. I agree about do the loop clockwise. Always seems surprising how short the trail is on top, after walking so far around the backside.

Re: 2021 Fall colors thread

Hiked the Lemei Lake Loop at Indian Heaven yesterday. It was cold and frosty so the colors were muted to begin with. Looks cold, brrrrrr. Was 26 degrees at the start but no wind. So we eventually warmed up. The campers looked cold standing outside their tents. On said they had snow and wind on Sund...

Sheep Canyon – 9-22-2021 – Fungi and Goats

It was a cool day with high clouds. We could see to the top of St Helens but on the west side the top was partially covered. IMG_1813.JPG IMG_1828.JPG With the rains we had, there were many mushrooms and other fungi growing, especially some big ones out the sides of dead trees. IMG_1832.JPG IMG_1840...

Re: MSH: Blue Lake to Castle Ridge, 9/6/2020

I've eyed that ridge a few times, but that's a lot of work. If Sheep Canyon TH was still accessible via car, it would be more reasonable. Also, a suspension bridge across Toutle would help. Drove to Sheep Canyon TH today in a Honda Pilot. There was a sedan at the trailhead. Anyone with Don Nelson's...

Survey for Silver Star/Yacolt Burn Area Development

I found this survey being done by the Silver Star Vision Plan Steering Committee. It has questions on the Yacolt Burn Area and the Silver Star Area. Hope it gets some good input and some action after the fact. Article: https://tdn.com/news/local/public-comment-sought-for-silver-star-scenic-area-visi...
