I thought I would post a list of trails that as of today have been impacted by the current fires (Riverside, Beachie Creek and Lionshead). The trails impacted thus far are:

  • Alder Flat Trail - 574
  • Battle Ax Creek Trail - 3339
  • Clackamas River Trail - 715
  • Cripple Creek Trail - 703
  • Double Peaks Trail - 735
  • Dry Ridge Trail - 518
  • Fish Creek Mountain Trail - 541
  • Gibson Lake Trail - 708
  • Hawk Mountain Trail - 564A
  • Hillockburn Trail - 516
  • Horseshoe Saddle Trail - 712
  • Lodgepole Trail - 706
  • Memaloose Trail - 515
  • Mon-Olallie Lake Trail - 732
  • Monon Lake Trail - 729
  • Olallie Butte Trail -720
  • Olallie Lake Trail - 731
  • Potato Butte Trail - 719A
  • Pyramid Butte Trail - 727
  • Red Lake Trail - 719
  • Rho Ridge Trail - 564
  • Rimrock Trail - 704
  • Riverside Trail - 715
  • Ruddy Hill Trail - 714
  • Significant portions of the PCT - 2000
  • Timber Lake Trail - 733
  • Top Lake Trail - 725
  • Whetstone Mountain Trail - 546

Some other info:

  • As of yesterday morning, the cabins at Olallie Lake were still surviving
  • The fate of the cabin on Hawk Mountain is unknown
  • The fate of the Oak Grove Work Center buildings is unknown
  • The fate of the buildings in Ripplebrook, Three Lynx and the Timber Lake Job Corps is unknown.

The impact on these trails and buildings is unknown at this time.  It is my hope that much of these fires was more of a mosaic burn which burned off a lot of the ground brush and not crown fires or concentrated heat which would cause entire stands to die.  All we can do at this point is watch and wait.

I saw a picture from Three Lynx. Some structures burnt down. Some are still standing.

If you have a link to the picture please post it.  I've not been able to find anything definitive on the status of anything in Ripplebook, Timber Lake, Oak Grove or 3 Lynx

Perhaps the cabin at Hawk Mountain is still intact.  I read this in an update from the fire:

Lionshead Fire Update – Thursday, September 17, 2020 – 9:00 a.m. 

...  Crews secured Hawk Cabin.  ....

That would be exceptionally good news if it is what it sounds like!
