Conditions at Cape Horn / Salmon River?

Post by OneSpeed » October 3rd, 2020, 1:51 pm

Considering a hike tomorrow with a friend who wants to do about 6-8 miles and a climb a little, just want to make sure I don't waste a drive to a trailhead.

Cape Horn and Salmon River (to the canyon lookout) appear to be open, but anybody know about blowdown, maybe closures not reflected on the web, etc.? I'm sure parking will be a hassle (I never hike on weekends!) so would lean Salmon River for that reason.

Looks like Burnt Lake is closed for wind damage, and I don't want to go anywhere near Mirror Lake!

Where did you wind up? Curious about a Salmon River update myself.
