Re: Looking for a 2-night backpack in July

You could start at the roaring river campground and hike into the serene lake/rock lakes area. That would bring you close to your target mileage. Maybe a side trip down to perrywinkle falls on roaring river? Several other possibilities for bumping up the distance. Mt. Mitchell is a cool destination ...

Re: Backpacking Whetstone Ridge

No water on the ridge, I always fill up at silver King lake. I haven't been on the couple miles of bagby South to the twin lakes trail so not sure about there. I tried fishing in the upper lake once but never caught anything. I think there are fish though so might just be timing and finding the righ...

Re: 2019 Snow Level

Salmon river trail is now clear. It looked like some fresh snow on the ridge tops above around 4000'.

Re: 2019 Snow Level

Tried to go to the northern elk lake Creek trailhead today and 63 is clear of snow but blocked by a large tree across the road just before road 6350 turnoff. Dickey Creek should be accessible now.

Re: April 18/19 Backpacking Trip...any suggestions?

The "other" eagle creek in Estacada has a few nice spots by the creek and I think it should be snow free by then with all the warm rains? No big views or waterfalls just some nice old growth and a wild flowing creek. The big trees do help to keep you dry. Same for Elk Lake creek in bull of the woods...

Re: 2019 Snow Level

As of 3/24, Wildcat mountain road still has deep compact snow a few miles before the gravel pit trailhead. It was around 18-24" when I turned back. I was surprised to find quite a bit of snow on Salmon River road as well. It's clear to the old trail parking area but is deep to the main trailhead wit...

Re: Trailheads requiring 4x4 / high clearance vehicles?

I drove most of the way down to Gumjuwac saddle from high prairie last summer. That's a fun one with some awesome views and good day hike options as long as you don't mind driving on cliffsides. We also looped around the entire badger creek wilderness which doesn't necessarily require 4x4 but there ...

Re: Huckleberry Mtn from Douglas Trailhead

Nice hike! Light through the trees and colors of the forest were spectacular. The Salmon-Huckleberry wilderness is so wet, green, and foggy. Makes it seem mysterious to me. I love it there :) No other hikers. So few people in that area that I'm usually startled when I see anyone. Always surprises me...
