Since I feel like I'm talking to myself on these forums, I thought maybe it was time to bring back the "what trail am I on" game. See if it spurs any discussion.
This may be an easy one, but here goes. These trees are on an old abandoned trail - they were "shaved" to make room for pack trains, I'm sure - what trail am I on?
I will take a guess... MP3 trail?
I think the part of the issue is that we have formed such a great community outside of the site that we don't look to the site as much for that camaraderie... Regardless, you do an awesome job maintaining and keeping this up, thank you!!!
If we wanted lots of followers we would post something about tom, dick and Harry mtn., then just wait for the millions of responses to roll in! ALWAYS take the trail less travelled...
By landslide you mean a big boulder about the size of a VW bug in the tread that you have to climb over, then I would say that you are on part of the Fish Creek Divide Trail that went from Whale Head in the north to East Mtn in the south. I think a recent spring exploration last week went on a portion of this very trail showing High Lake mostly covered in ice.
And Rob I believe that moniker "trails less traveled" is a description of the Clackamas River Ranger District and it's trails.
So you actually found the trail to high lake from whalehead and hiked it? This has been a obsession for me for over a year. Can you tell me more?
There isn't actual trail the whole way but there is a path along with some original tread. The easiest way to find it is to go to High Lake from the Fish Creek Mtn trail and go around to the North end of the lake and poke around. You will see tread that leads north. Follow it as far as you can. It is faint in spots and then enters cut areas and uses old roads, etc to make its way north. I'm guessing there is about a mile and a quarter of original tread - the rest (probably a quarter to a half mile) is pieced together.
