Is there some sacred old list out there that contains all of the trail numbers for the Clackamas River RD, including former (abandoned) trails?  

The only place I've seen trail #s listed is on the 60s and 70s MHNF maps.  

It would be good to know the original numbers when we rescue trails from oblivion.

How did they keep track of trail numbers in the old days?  It is a logical system, based on the old ranger districts.  I just haven't seen this document, maybe it's long gone.

Thank you!

Apparently no one knows of such an index.  SO, how do "those in the know" know the old trail numbers?

The oldest maps have the trails named, not numbered: "Red House Trail".

My understanding is the first digit was the Distric the trail was in. Our current Clackamas River District is I believe four or parts of four prior Districts merged over time.

I noticed a list on the FS website 4-5 years ago that showed current and abandoned trail numbers for the Mt Hood Nat'l Forest, but that seems to be gone in the last revision or two they have done to their website.

The 1967 Mt Hood NF map shows our District as all or parts of Estacada, Lakes, Collawash and Bear Springs.

 

You can see the map segments here:

It would have been nice to see that old trail number listing.  It seems like a lot of good useful information was lost with the FS website "upgrade".

Here's a link to the only list I've ever found online:  http://www.mthood.info/hikingt.....mindex.htm

 

I don't think it has any info that we don't already have here.

I took a look and it looks like (more or less) only current trails.  There are definitely some missing however - 564-A (Hawk Mountain) isn't on there, which I thought was supposed to be an officially maintained trail.  Potato Butte isn't on there, but I thought that was officially abandoned.  It also doesn't show Rho Creek which I thought was officially returned to active status.  Rimrock isn't there either and I'm sure there are others.  Funny thing - they show the Geronimo trail, which I thought was officially abandoned.  That list is probably WAY old - it doesn't have a date on it, though, so hard to tell how old it is.
