Re: State of Dickey Creek Trail - Bull of the woods #553

There are at least 3-4 sites at Big Slide Lake but probably more. If you explore around the lake you'll probably find something to your liking.

Re: The other eagle creek road closed

That's great news! This is one of my favorite hikes and I wish the local Forest Service would do their utmost to really bring it into the hiking network. It's a fantastic place to escape to, and I'm glad it's reopened.

Thanks John! I'm looking forward to getting this out into the world. I think a lot of people are going to like this.

There will be more talks in the near future if folks can't make this one.

Re: Wed, 1/31 - Matt Reeder talks new book PDX Hiking 365 at

I've been a member here since the forum opened in 2006. Like many longtime members I don't really post much anymore - such is the evolution of forum culture, and this place is no exception. But I'm grateful that there are still so many folks active here. One of the reasons I stopped posting as much ...

Re: The Table, Mt. Jefferson, Oct. 4-6

Awesome! This is a special place...and it's such a pain to get to it doesn't see a lot of people. There is a trail past Table Lake, it just gets a bit confusing right as it leaves the lake. The ranger district left that sign there from a fire a few years ago. I asked them about it and they said the ...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

Rep. Walden has already introduced a bill that would expedite restoration. I haven't read it in detail but what I read from second-hand sources is that some environmental processes would be bypassed in order to expedite salvage logging. For much of the fire area, wouldn't that require adding new ro...

Re: Eagle Creek Trail (Gorge) Closed by Fire (July 5)

I fear a number of Gorge Trails will be "Perditioned" and others, rumor has it, may not open until 2019. (That's not a typo) USFS will protect us, for our own good of course.
