Weird Items Found

I typically pick up litter as I see it while hiking (with a few exceptions, like used facial tissue or anything too large to fit in a pocket) and then dump my "trash pocket" when I get home. The other day this included a tiny folded up piece of paper, and as it went into the recycling I couldn't res...

Re: Tree down lengthwise on the Oneonta Trail

Yep, I encountered this last weekend and came here to report it, but you already did. I was amazed how well it lined up with the trail.

I had no problem walking along the top, but as I was doing so, I imagined how much harder it would be if the same log were suspended over a rushing river. :lol:

Bell Creek 5/16/15

Since the trail to Triple Falls is open again, I went out last Saturday to try the Bell Creek loop for the first time. I left from the Horsetail Falls trailhead at 9 am and traffic on the trail was pretty light. When I got to Triple Falls I was the only person there, which was a first! It was pretty...

Re: Exploring old roads + more cars in Bridal Veil Creek Feb

Don, I used your map above today to find the Bullet Car, which I'd never seen before. That was fun. I was also intrigued by the dotted black line that leads from that path straight West to a square on the map, but I didn't see anything that resembled a road or path in that vicinity. Does any path st...

Re: The Devil's Back Yard

After reading a few more posts about the area, I tried this again today. First, I found the survey marker on the Multnomah Basin Road, then looked for the "collapsed RR trestle" in the map that Don Nelson posted in this thread . I found the road, and a gully that looked like it might have needed a t...

The Devil's Back Yard

Inspired by some dashed lines on my Green Trails map of the West Gorge, this trip report and another weekend of unseasonably sunny weather, I set out last Sunday morning to explore a larger loop from Wakheena Falls around Devil's Rest. I don't know the names of some of these trails and roads, so I m...

Rock Slide on Larch Mountain Trail

I saw this rock slide today on Larch Mountain Trail, 1.5 miles south of Multnomah Falls Lodge and .2 miles north of the junction with Wakheena Trail. I haven't been there since last spring, so I don't know how new this is. Other hikers and dogs didn't seem to have a problem with it, but it takes a c...

Re: Closed: Benson Bridge, Mult/Wahkeena access, Triple Fall

I found this thread, showing that the Wakheena Falls hole is already repaired, with interesting photos of how they did it:
