Re: Mount Margaret Loop

Another resource here; they discuss water. Seems like I do remember seeing some water near Mt Margaret Oct last year.

Re: Mount Margaret Loop

For reference, last year on June 22, 2018, I camped at Ridge Camp and it was dry then. Water options were the snow fields at the Coldwater Peak trail junction or the below at the Lakes Trail creek crossing. Travel over snow fields from Coldwater Peak to Mount Margaret was fine until past Mount Marga...

Re: Timberline Trail: 6/27/18-6/29/18

For what it's worth. I crossed the Sandy this morning (July 7th). I changed into my crocs. Water was less than knee high. A log extended only part of the way across. With care, it did not pose a problem.

Lot's of trail runners out there today on the timberline!

Christmas Ornament Hunt

While visiting Tumble Lake, ran into a Forest Service employee who said he was hanging Christmas tree ornaments. Apparently, this year’s National Christmas Tree will come from the Willamette National Forest. To celebrate, the Forest is hiding 200 ornaments along their non-wilderness trails. For the ...

Re: Enchanted Valley; Olympic National Park

Nice trip write up. I went the same weekend with another group. We probably camped near you. Hope you don't mind my adding some pictures here. Even with the crowds it was a great weekend. Everyone seemed to get along well and be respectful of others. Maybe hiking in 14 miles tired people out. Or may...

Dome Rock/Tumble Lake – 6/05/2018

Had a great hike up to Dome Rock and on to Tumble Lake. While the climb to Dome Rock from Detroit Lake is over 3,000 feet, the path down to Tumble Lake (and back up) is the steeper part of this journey even though it’s only another 800 feet. GPS said the round-trip was 13.7 miles. View of Tumble Lak...

Re: Silver Falls Perimeter Trail Loop 3/07/2018

arlohike - This loop has it's ups and downs; almost 2,000' cumulative elevation gain when I checked my track. Didn't really feel like that much though, due to the trail grade. marksec - Saw lots of animal tracks in the snow. There's a stuffed cougar in the lodge! And a stuffed "Sparred" Owl. They sa...

Silver Falls Perimeter Trail Loop 3/07/2018

Short report on the Perimeter Trail conditions, but first a picture on the North Falls from the rim trail. Because a Silver Falls Park report must include a falls picture, https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4780/40658203332_3d806fd572_c.jpg The Silver Falls State Park Perimeter Trail is a nice winter hi...

Re: Lamberson Spur Snowshoe

I'll bet it's nice up there in the winter. I find in a little ironic here that the scientific name for Sugar Pine is "Pinus lambertiana". Since Sugar Pine is not found as far North as Mt. Hood, I doubt Lamberson Butte was named for the tree. I'm not sure who Lamberson Butte is named for. Thanks for ...
