Thread: A helpful hint.

  1. #1

    Default A helpful hint.

    When hiking in a new area, especially on more remote trails, check with the land agency for when the trails were last maintained. Last week i spent several days going over, under, around, and through literally hundreds of blowdowns along some Oregon trails. I could have planned a different route if I had asked. Scuffed up my legs pretty well, too.

    According to horse packers I met, the trails are never cleared, at least by USFS.

    Very much a wilderness experience, on the plus side.

    near the PCT at donner pass (I-80) the trail head sign board shows a warren lake trail - it has not been maintained for 30 years and does not actually exist at all - yet there it is on a fresh sign board looking like an attractive loop with the PCT - certainly fooled me
