I wish this trail was still maintained
It's closed right now d/t fires but I think the trail is officially still maintained? Well, at least as maintained as any of the BOTW trails are.

Steigerwald wildlife refuge

This was closed last time I tried going there so we walked the levee instead. This must be why. Sounds like a win win kind of project. Always nice to read news that isn't dire as usual.

Re: Forest Service Funding for deferred maintenance projects

Be nice if they used it to catch up on deferred trail maintenance. Might help to spread people out more across the entire trail system rather than concentrating on just a few areas.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm heading up next weekend so I'll plan on starting from the quarry.

Re: Fish creek area fire damage

The forest Service just posted a Flickr album with some more photos. Link to album :shock: I drove up hillockburn the other day and it was mostly a ground fire with occasional crowning up there. I was hoping that would be the case for the rest of it. Can't believe it's burned so completely! Going t...

Fish creek area fire damage

https://www.clackamas.us/sheriff/2020-1 ... neSAR.html

There's a search and rescue looking for a missing plane in the fish creek area. The sheriff's office posted some pics on Facebook and the area looks completely burned out. First time I've seen pics up there :cry:

Re: Winter comes to the Dark Divide - 10/24/20

Never been up there but looks like a cool area. The pictures remind me of the Salmon-huckleberry wilderness in the snow. I love early snow hiking. Totally changes otherwise familiar trails, and in the case of the salmon-huckleberry the snow covers up all the shotgun shells and broken beer bottles :l...

shows a line of controlled burns happening on the Warm Springs Reservation.
I was wondering what was going on there. Probably to keep it from reaching 26?

Re: Jefferson Park and Opal Creek burned?

My heart goes out to all those that lost their homes and loved ones. This one hit personally as the hillockburn area where I grew up got hit really bad. Have many family members evacuated, and fire was within a few hundred feet of my dad's current house. Luckily some folks came together and got it s...
