Re: CCT in Indian Heaven?

Hiked yesterday. Found most of the trail, but it wasn't always easy. Got off a few times. My biggest problem was at Spring Camp. However, I did stumble across the actual Spring. Surprisingly good flow for this time of year. My plan was to take the CCT to Tombstone Lake and return on the PCT. We foun...

Re: CCT in Indian Heaven?

I don't have any current information, but I do intend to go check out that CCT-PCT loop soon. What I do have to add is a couple of links of historical interest. https://ecoshare.info/uploads/ccamp/synthesis_paper_tools/huckleberry/Norton_et_al._1999.pdf https://ethnobiology.org/sites/default/files/p...

Upper Siouxon Loop

I think the mileage is too high in the Field Guide for this. I'll admit my gps bounced around some in the canyon, but I got 10.3 miles on this route as described. I think it may actually be less than 10 miles. The elevation on the Old Trail segment goes up and down some, but even including those gai...

Re: Campground for a camping wedding?

Lost Lake might be an idea. Looks like they have group sites & organization sites.
