Toutle Trail near Sheep Canyon camp sites?

Post by DannyH » August 11th, 2020, 7:20 am

Hi Everyone,

Thinking of doing a couple nights somewhere close to home. It's been awhile since I passed that section of the mountain and can't remember if there are any camp sites with access to clear water. I think I remember some sites where the Sheep Canyon Trail intersects with the Toutle Trail, but I can't remember. Thinking about going there Thursday or Friday just to check it out.

There is a large site right at the junction of the two trails, and then there are a couple sites about halfway between there and the South Fork Toutle, tucked back in trees along a creek. Both have good water.
There are many camp spots right at the Toutle, but you'll likely be sharing them with round-the-mountainers, and backtracking to the previously mentioned site for easy water.
