Re: Eagle Creek Trail

Eagle Creek Trail

Does anyone know an about (updated) time (year) when TKO/ USFS plans to reopen the Eagle Creek Trail?

Ever since the 2017 fire, I've had a very hard time finding a trail that is even close to the Eagle Creek in distance, elevation, and totally awesome waterfalls. Thanks! :)

Hidden Falls Nature Park & Waterfall

A friend at work has been egging me on about visiting this quaint little waterfall called Hidden Falls because of my huge interest in photographing waterfalls anywhere I can find them.

Re: CalTopo Offline

:) Thanks Karl! Thanks for the info. It sounds like you know the caltopo owner, so it will probably be up and running in no time. The Apache Tomcat I was referring to was a US Navy Tomcat Fighter Squadron Op during Viet Nam at Hamburger Hill.

Caltopo.com is no longer in service. A few days ago to currently, a DOS PROMPT screen appears with the words Apache Tomcat all over it. Apache Tomcat is a military term. Has the site been taken over by the U.S. Government? I loved that online topo map. It showed a lot of features, especially trails....
