Wildcat Mountain Road closed to New McIntryre Trail

Post by Sugar Pine » November 21st, 2020, 10:29 am

Tried to drive to the New McIntryre Trailhead on Nov. 5 and found it gated at the junction with the road to the Douglas TH (by the quarry). Seemed early, so I called the forest service and was told it is gated during hunting season and then kept locked over the winter. Just FYI as I could not find Wildcat Mtn Road or FR3626 listed on the Mt Hood forest roads table showing road status. If anyone has other information, I would be interested. Thanks.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm heading up next weekend so I'll plan on starting from the quarry.
