Re: Lost gloves, Wahkeena trail, Nov. 10

I came through there this morning. I kept my eyes open on the trail, and scanned around at the trailhead on the benches, walls, and other places people tend to set found items, but I didn't spot anything. Sorry.

Re: Salmon Butte 791 - Trailhead advisory

Ugh, and here's me not five minutes before reading that thinking I'll go to Salmon Butte this week. I need to learn to teleport into places without worrying about the car.

Re: Foxglove/Primrose/etc? (Devil's Rest)

Couldn't tell you about Primrose, but certainly Foxglove. I do that regularly. If anything, the bit downhill from Devil's Rest in the muddy gully is greatly improved.

Re: Tom, Dick & Harry Mtn 11/4-5/19

I was up there today. What really struck me was how green and lush the trail looked as you went above the lake. I like fall colors just fine, but it was a treat to be warm and green and have a pretend spring in November.

And for god's sake, do the loop COUNTER-clockwise
Just reread this. Surely you meant to say clockwise? The whole point of getting there early is to get out of the Multnomah Falls section--and have some peace to enjoy the falls on the Larch Mtn trail--before all the people show up.

Re: Looking for a decent day hike

By chance, can you post the trail you mention. I got Mirror Lake and TDH, but lost at finding info on Ski Bowl. Thanks! There's no official trail, but it's really easy to find your way. Eeeeeh... This is not something I would encourage someone to just casually jump into, especially someone who know...

Re: Looking for a decent day hike

Just realized Monday is Veteran's Day. I revise to note that a long holiday weekend would not be my ideal time to try to go near Multnomah Falls. Or at least move that arrival time up as much as you can. Lastly, locations like Multnomah Falls and Timberline Lodge don't charge fees for parking. Belie...

Re: Looking for a decent day hike

OK, so now I've noticed the username is "East Coast Hiker," so maybe you are up for more than an easy walk in the woods. I'd still say the Wahkeena loop and Falls Creek Falls are good options in that mileage window, especially if you're into waterfalls. But if the mountain was your particular intere...

Re: Looking for a decent day hike

I'm one who generally likes everyone else's "boring" hike, but I have to agree Mirror Lake by itself is a bit "meh," without going on to Tom Dick & Harry. BUT...could use a little more info from OP here to ensure the suggestions aren't getting him in over his head. I'm reading the "visiting," "unfam...

Re: Looking for a decent day hike

Do you mean specifically on the mountain? Personally Mirror Lake on a weekend sounds like a bit of a nightmare, unless you're getting there very early. Especially with the warm temps now. If you're just visiting for a little while and haven't already been, it would be a shame to miss the Multnomah -...
