Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

Here is the map I was looking for. USGS 1930 Mt. Jefferson 1:125000 reprinted 1948. Have fun!

Re: Old PCT route - S. Chambers Lake area?

Hmmm, just got an idea from the Table Park conversation.

Maybe an older USGS topo would have enough resolution to show the route. Might even have one!

Jerry just posted a link to historic USGS topo maps in my Table Park thread. That looks like it may hold the key to this little puzzle.

Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

That might be the one I am remembering. Just visited the OSU Library. All of their historic maps have been moved to "Special Collections" and you need an appointment to get in. They DID send me a copy of the 1961 map, and the Indian trail was no longer shown on that map. Also got a PM from Walkin' F...

Re: Old PCT route - S. Chambers Lake area?

Thanks, that is a real resource!

I have one of those maps somewhere, 1960s version. The resolution is just not quite enough though it does clarify that the trail did go around the east side of S. Matthieu Lake. That narrows things a lot.

Much appreciated...

Old PCT route - S. Chambers Lake area?

Greetings with a new one for the Lost Trail "experts". In the companion posting about "Table Park", I described part of a long Boy Scout hike that I took around 1957. This was well before the more recent re-alignment of the PCT. There is one part of that 1957 trail that has continued to haunt me, be...

Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

The "old map" I am talking about is the USGS 15min or 30min that was available in the late 1950s. I don't recall it having any vegetation overlay but it might have. My fading memory has them as being all sort of sepia. Still looking for mine and will probably visit the OSU Library Map Room this afte...

Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

Just to add a little history about the area. As mentioned previously, I first visited this area as part of a big Boy Scout backpack trip. This was about 1956. At that time, the PCT followed what was then called "The Oregon Skyline Trail". The trail dropped down from Jefferson Park to Pamelia Lake (w...

Re: Old Trail to Table Park (Mt. Jefferson Wilderness)?

When I was there in the mid-1960s, I basically followed the route from the saddle down into the park shown on Don's map. We camped by a little pond right at the bottom of the trail. On the second day, we went around the east side of The Table and got to the top near the north end, where there is a s...
