Anyone been up S Sister lately?
Yes, still a fair amount of snow on the route but people seem to be making it up no problem when the weather is good.

Re: Eugene-Area Hikes to Prep for South Sister?

Eula Ridge is your best bet :) Steepest trail around, between Eugene and Oakridge.

Re: Tales of Trouble and Trash in the Oregon Woods

Thank you so much Sean for doing the work and posting this summary. It's a big problem and I don't quite understand what would compel people to behave this way. Surely if you can afford to buy it, you can afford to dispose of it. The root cause seems to be societal: we have too much crap. We buy it,...

Re: Crater Lake & Klamath Falls Suggestions Needed

Why Klamath Falls? Its something that appears on some sites as attractions and it's only not far south of the lake so I thought I might as well visit. I also have no idea why you'd want to visit Klamath Falls! Here are some other ideas nearby: Lava Beds, as was already mentioned, is a crazy cool pl...

Re: Strawberry Mt loop

I just missed you! I did a couple of day hikes to Slide Mountain and Indian Creek Butte last weekend.

The trails in that area definitely need some maintenance and more boots on them. Glad to see you were out there.

My friend is doing the loop in a few days. Where did you end up camping?

Re: Canyon Mountain (Strawberry Mtn Wilderness) - 5/26/18

Cool! Where were those cabins? I thank you for the beta on the Strawberries, as I just had a delightful visit there. The trails are very faint through some of those burned areas. I found it really enjoyable to hike through the burn because, as you saw: wildflowers and views. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Central Cascades Wilderness Strategies Update

They're talking about how crowded these Wildernesses are, and, in the same document, talking about their plans to decommission 15 miles of trail. Do they not see the irony? This drives me crazy. There are lots of inconsistencies in the Forest Service's proposals. I hope people are calling them out ...

Re: Central Cascades Wilderness Strategies Update

Jerry, you can call our things you like/don't like about the alternatives. Like the fact that they are considering hardly anything besides quotas. Getting any comment in before the deadline means that you'll also be able to chime in when it's time to appeal the decision (if necessary). If you do NOT...

Re: A hiking picture for each day of the year...?

It's hiking on each day of the year, but it may take several years If you lived next to a nice hiking place it would be possible to do every day of a year, but that would be an effort. Especially if you were sick or something. Every single day would be a stretch, especially if you wanted variety. I...
