Re: Do you register when entering a wilderness area?

Filling these out is against my LNT principles ;)

Re: Visit the Central Cascades while you still can...

I've become totally disillusioned by this whole process. The public comment period on fees will be even more of a sham that the the comment period on the proposals was. They will have decided the fee before the comment period. My money is still on $10.00 per day per person for day hikers lucky enoug...

Re: Explain the forest pass system?

The next ripple in this so-called enforcement of the "unambiguously prohibited" pass (see Adams vs USFS; and Bark vs USFS) is that if the TH is near a campground (Wahtum Lake or Fish Creek on the Clackamas River or Eightmile Creek), the concessionaire will give you a ticket EVEN IF YOU HAVE A NW FO...

Re: Explain the forest pass system?

One of the very cheapest activities is maintaining trails, just the basics. Go look at any reports, Americorps crews cost relatively nothing in the scope of income and expenditures. But while Willamette National Forest tries to restrict access, out the other side of their mouth they've actually dec...

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

Are people allowed to walk the road to Nesika? At the intersection with the Larch Mountain trail last weekend, I saw signs that seemed to forbid travel to the east, but the wording referred to trails, not a road. I see on their web site that Trails Club members have been working on the lodge. So I ...

Re: The Memaloose Hills and Social Media

[qb]It takes more work, but if you're not going for the famous/epic/insta-worthy/overshot and overcooked favorite places, you can still find solitude. It's up to you![/b] Absolutely and it doesn't take that much work! This evening we hiked the Multnomah - Wahkeena loop. Beginning at 5:15pm Multnoma...

Re: Visit the Central Cascades while you still can...

Visit Bend has been supportive of the FS through this whole process. I'm blown away by this, I still believe Bend is finished as a destination for out of state hikers. what I had not considered is that Bend doesn't care if hikers come or not. After my very positive experiences in Arizona last week ...

Re: Visit the Central Cascades while you still can...

Chiyoko & I just got back from a few days hiking in Sedona and it struck me how such a trip to say Bend under the new rules would not even be worth the bother. $15.00 got us a week TH parking pass, that was all we needed. Trails are busier that Central Oregon, some like Devils Bridge make Green Lake...

Re: The Memaloose Hills and Social Media

Also to limit impact put the trail where people want to walk! A good example is the friends Moisure plateau. (Their land, they can do what they want I know.) The new official trail though is far from the edge and the best views. I'm sure that's deliberate for safety reasons etc but people will still...
