Re: Coos Bay to Bandon 1-23 to 1-25-19

Nice report, thx. I always like your posts, nice locations, photos, narrative, a bit of history, interesting geological facts - like an article out of National Geographic.

Re: Nick Eaton loop

Nifty outing and nice report - you covered a lot of ground. The descending ridge you took looks interesting as does the ridge to the north of it. Likely in better shape and easier to follow than Casey Creek Trail. This could almost go in the off-trail forum. Borderline. Maybe, until you took off on ...

Shellrock Mtn Summit (Gorge) - Jan 25, 2019

Now that more of the Gorge has opened I've been going out to visit old haunts to view current conditions. A couple of weeks ago I explored Lindsey Ridge (the ridge to the west of Lindsey Creek) and it has its own set of problems from blowdown in unburned areas but once in the burn zone to the south ...

Re: Cook Hill on a winter day

Thx Don for the report & photos. Cook Hill has been on my list forever - maybe your report is enough to get me out there and do it. I guess parking is not an issue at the trailhead. I'd be looking at the loop with Cook, Aug and Dog - like when the snow is deeper and amenable to snowshoes.

FYI: Google Earth now has Gorge fire imagery

FYI: I'm not seeing it in Google Maps but Google Earth has updated imagery to include the Gorge fire. Interesting looks.

Re: Palmer Mill Rd/Primrose Path - Dec 7, 2018

I think I know the road you mean. I followed it once a few years ago. It climbed to the top rim of the gravel pit before fading into the bushes. At that point, two flags on the left indicated something of interest in the woods to the southeast, but I couldn’t figure out what and didn’t see any flag...

Re: Palmer Mill Rd/Primrose Path - Dec 7, 2018

I located a road just a little beyond the start of the decom on the south side of Bridal Veil creek that will need exploring. I followed it up until a switchback. I think I know the road you mean. I followed it once a few years ago. It climbed to the top rim of the gravel pit before fading into the...

Blue Barrel on BV Platter - Dec 25, 2018

More BV Platter investigations. Took Pablos Ridge (I guess I'm claiming it) from Angels Rest to visit the Blue Barrel and investigate conditions leading to and including the Stair Step Trail next door to Coopey Creek. For aficionados of Neo-archeological junk I'd like to report the Blue Barrel survi...

Re: Lady Ridge

[...]I think I can safely say there's little or no remnants of the trail.[...] The west end of the #777 around the nose of that ridge still exists and is what forms part of the ZZ Mtn Trail. The part that follows Devils Creek has some blazed trees in the old growth. Parts going east along the ridge...

Re: Lady Ridge

Neat. That connector trail being overgrown is a real problem for getting on the ZZ Mtn Trail from the end of the 35a Rd, someone should do something about freshening up the tread through there. Looks like your Lady Ridge travel follows the route along the abandoned Devils Canyon Trail or as designat...
