Re: Portable Trail Maintenance Equipment

Nice work, Mike. Not a bad idea right now for training hikes. How well does that saw carry in a backpack?

Re: Hunchback to Green Canyon -- 5/2/21

Green Canyon to the Hunchback junction has been a mess for years. It's even worse from that junction if you are trying to do the Salmon River loop. The amount of treefall and the length of time that it's been there is amazing, in a bad way.

Re: Seeking cheap, homemade, high-cal energy!

A combination of whole powdered milk, hot chocolate mix, protein powder and an optional pack of Via makes for a quick drinking meal. You will need to have a dedicated bottle for this mix (24oz gatorade bottle works well) as it does not clean up nicely. You can pre-make the powder and put them in ser...

Never mind, FS indicates that 434 is not maintained and hard to follow. Probably non-existent after the fire.

Re: GoalTechHikes Eagle Creek 1/2/21 - Post Fire Opening

Any thoughts on an Eagle Creek loop via 440 -> 434 (Eagle-Benson) -> PCT -> 405B -> 405 (Ruckel Creek) -> 400?

Re: CCT in Indian Heaven?
