Multnomah - Wahkeena loop

Quick condition report as of this morning. Short version is I was expecting it to be terrible after all the rain, and it's fine. In more detail: ICE : Trail is frustratingly patchy. Much more melted out than I expected. While most of the way is either bare or grainy snow, there's still enough ice fo...

Re: Triple Falls on a snowy day

Since everyone is mentioning tree fall -- shortly after the trail re-opened and before the snowfall, I hiked from the Horsetail Falls TH, to Oneonta and up to Franklin Ridge, then down through Multnomah to loop back. Up on the top of Franklin Ridge in the burn sort of where it is flat, there are a ...

Re: Triple Falls on a snowy day

The trail appears open above the bridge, but the snow starts to get deeper. Looks like a lot of serious work went in to clearing out the fallen trees I went as far as the next bridge. I don't think there weren't any big trees down, at least that I can recall, but there was a lot of debris on the tr...

Oneonta open

Oneonta trail #424 has been reopened along the full length for a few weeks. The associated hikes in the FG have not been updated and still say closed (think that's just Triple Falls and Larch Mtn via Oneonta?)

Small slide, Oneonta

A small slide on Oneonta has taken out the switchback end and displaced the gabion down the hill. Still entirely passable for now. This is the very first switchback end above the junction with Horsetail Falls trail. (My phone is showing a location of 45.583865, -122.073391 associated with the image,...

their fire zone hazard warnings are posted at all the trailheads
Exactly, there's literally bright red warning signs that say exactly that. Word is "out" just fine, it's whether people care to listen. And you can't control that.

Wilderness permit boxes on Larch Mtn

Was up there this week and noticed a wilderness permit box had appeared at the junction of Larch Mtn Trail and Multnomah Creek Way. There was another on Bell Creek Trail at the junction with Oneonta, though that's still closed. Haven't been that way in a couple months, so I'm not sure how new those ...

Re: Closed hikes in Field Guide

Noticed today the barrier was gone from Shepperd's Dell, and the state park site confirms it as open. So there's one "hike" that can be updated.
