Re: Lower Wenaha River 4-26-19

Wow, I had last visited the Wenaha River Trail in June 2015! I must have just missed the fire. Here's my bridge pic from back then! https://i.imgur.com/VY5BmBY.jpg The creek should be easily fordable once the flow has subsided a little bit, but one will have to catch the now preciously short window ...

Re: Steens Mountain Loop, June 28th - 30th

Thanks all! A friend and I attempted this loop last 4th of July, but we were unable to find the scramble trail over the Big Indian headwall. From looking at your GPS track, we were on the wrong side. We made 3 different attempts to ascend, each ending in cliffs. More frustrating is that we saw a gro...

Re: Steens Mountain Loop, June 28th - 30th

The next morning we knew we had a rough day ahead of us. Not only did we have to climb up out of the gorge, we had to descend back into another gorge, doing most of the 4300ft of elevation in what we hoped would be a 5 hour period. We woke up at 5am and it was already plenty bright. It was a bit of ...

Steens Mountain Loop, June 28th - 30th

Hi all! Been feeling a bit guilty for backpacking for over a year now and never having done a trip report despite telling myself i would! So I thought i'd do it up right for the first time and did a whole writeup and everything to go with my photos. Wanted to share this trip in particular because th...

Hells Canyon High Trail

Hi all! I'm planning a weeklong trip out in hell's canyon for next week and have a few questions. The plan is to travel the route mentioned in Douglas Lorain's book, has anyone taken this route recently? How is the trail? Anything troublesome to watch out for or consider? I've heard mixed reports. T...

Wenaha River Trail conditions

Hi all! Was thinking about trying to do the Wenaha River Trail next week. I called the ranger station about conditions and they said they didnt expect any snow on the trail but that there would definitely be blowdown and possible washouts since they don't to trail maintenance until the summer. I can...

Re: Badger Creek

Got it. I think depending on our timing we'll hike in to camp near pine creek on Friday eve or check out the Bonney crossing campground, though will we have to pay to camp at Bonney yet? Where should we expect to park the car? Saturday we'll hike to the lake and back to post camp or explore a side t...

Re: Badger Creek

We saw a rattlesnake on my trip up there a few weeks ago, the first one I'd seen there in quite a few trips. I'm assuming the lake is open to driving in now to the best option might be to camp at Post Camp (7 miles in) and dayhike to the lake or up one of the side trails. Are you saying drive in 7 ...

Badger Creek

Hi everyone! Long time lurker first time poster here. Love the site! A few friends and myself are thinking about backpacking next weekend, and I think the badger creek trail is going to be our best bet for the short time we have (the weekend). I was curious if anyone had any information about the co...
