    ken moszeter reviewed Diamond Creek trail

    about 1 month ago

    Began my walking down to the base of Salt Creek falls. Upon returning to the top I walked along Salt Creek; crossed a wooden bridge; reaching the junction of Vivian Lake trail and Diamond Creek trail. Take the trail to the right (Diamond Cr trail). Good fall colors to be seen. Soon reached a junction to reach Too Much Bear Lake which is just a very short side trip. Returning to the mail trail is some elevation gain from which you can hear and just barely see through the trees a waterfall in the distance. Continuing on along Diamond Creek is another junction signed Lower Diamond Creek Falls. This short hike will take you to the base of the falls. Note you will be crossing a log bridge with signage stating the bridge has been damaged and do not proceed if you are unsure. Returning to the main trail continue uphill for a view from above of this waterfall. Continuing on the main trail you reach an unmarked junction. Take the trail to the left which takes you back to Salt Creek parking area. (The other trail at the junction takes you to Falls Creek falls and Vivian Lake.

    From Lava Camp Lake walked to South Matthieu lake then to North Matthieu lake, returning to Lava Camp Lake via the PCT. Almost no mosquitos the entire walk. Heading north on the PCT from North Matthieu provides some grand views of lava fields, a few wild flowers, and some Cascade peaks. Nice short day hike.

    I arrived at the trailhead about 8 am on a Sunday morning. There was only one other car in the parking lot. As others have stated the sights and sounds were fantastic. I did not meet very many folks on the more difficult trail below the suspension bridge but when I returned to the car after about 4 hours of taking photos the parking lot was overflowing with cars.

    From the town of Scotts Mills, follow Crooked Finger Road for 10 3/4 miles (1.25 miles past the end of the pavement) and turn right on an unmarked road at a sign for an ORV area. Follow this road downhill, ignoring all spurs, for 2.25 miles to the end of the road at a gate and park. The road down is rough and steep in places and is not well suited to low clearance vehicles. From the end of the road, walk 100 feet back along the road to the trail which leads steeply downhill to the creek and falls in about 1/2 mile. The trail can be slick and muddy when its been raining so exercise caution when hiking downhill.

    Note - there are two trails. The trail further from the gate (end of the road) is easier. Both trails have ropes to assist. Once at the creek hike upstream.

    We hiked into Green Lakes, stay overnight, then went for the summit via the south ridge. The trail is faint , skirts Lewis Gracer, intersects South Sister Climbers' trail for the final 1 mile to the summit. The trail avoids crowds as this pathway is not the main trek to the summit.

    ken moszeter reviewed Tamolitch Pool Trail

    over 6 years ago

    I've reach the pool from both the north (Sahalia Falls area) and the south (Trail Bridge Reservoir). Both hikes are forested and easy. Starting from above Sahalia Falls gives you good views of the McKenzie River especially if you hike the west side of the river. I did hike from the south during winter months - snow shoes were handy - stretches along the river are very serene. During nice days you share the trail with bikes.

    Begin at Frog Camp off Highway 242. Obtain a permit from the McKenzie Ranger Station before starting on this trail. It is a gradual climb for the first 3 miles - reaching a lava flow. The trail crosses the flow reaching White Branch creek. I continued onto the PCT to the Wickiup Plains and descended to Devils Lake. It is a steady climb until the base of Middle Sister; then fairly level until the descent out of Wickiup Plains. Great views. Excellant day hike especially with someone to drops you off and retrieves you at each end.

    Forested trail until reaching the PCT/Junction to Linton Meadow. Still lots of snow covering the trails near the PCT. The ascent is steady and not cruelly steep. Not really a 'fun' trail. Bug nuisance factor is very high. This was an out & back hike.

    Scott Trail to PCT. Then southward on the PCT to Rainbow Falls. Onto Obsidian Trail back to the car. Fantastic hike. Be sure to get the necessary permit to hike thru the Obsidian trail area (phone ahead to the McKenzie Ranger Station to reserve a permit). Done this hike twice, the second time getting caught in a rain/snow storm.

    Scott trail to the PCT is a moderate 3 mile hike - thru lava flow, past 4 in 1 Cone. Turning northward on the PCT I continued toward Matthieu Lakes and Dee Wright Observatory. This was a very worthwhile hike. I then hiked out/back to Little Belknap Crater. I returned to the car via Highway 242 (really boring).

    I've hiked the trail twice using June Lake trail as my access point. Neither time was I able to complete the hike in one day. The first trip was under mostly cloudy skies with rain for about 25 percent. The second trip was under clear skies. Lots of up/down thru ravines - slows down the pace. The ascent out of the South Toutle seems to take forever. The trail had deteriorated some between the time of the two hikes

    I hiked the Cheat Creek trail to Triangulation Peak and back. Cheat Creak Meadow had a nice floral display. At the upper end of the meadow you again enter forest and gently ascend to a ridge with good views of the peak and Mt Jefferson. Only the final ascent of the peak can be called demanding.

    over 6 years ago

    Before reaching Jaw Bone Flats, take the trail to the right that crosses Opal Creek via bridge. Continue on the trail following the creek upstream. The trail ended just past the intersection of Beachie Creek and Opal Creek (good place for a break). Forested trail with good views of the creek. I have hiked this route twice, traffic was light to none. This is an out and back trail. I guessed at the milage.

    I've hiked the trail to Enchanted Valley three times, December, March, and June. The December hike required snow shoes. I've never made it to Anderson Pass due to snow. The hike into the valley is gorgeous. The valley is wonderful - lots of bear in June. March trip was sunny while the June trip was a mix of rain, snow, wind, and sunny days.

    Hiking into Jefferson Lakes park - many great views. The trail has a modest elevation gain before a short descent into JLP. I hiked out of the park via Whitewater Creek trail to Craig trail, crossing the Breitenbush River on a log & back to the trail head.

    Hiked to PCT and then onto Jefferson Lakes park and back. From TH it is a fairly steep hike until the PCT is reached. Enjoyable forested trail. Jefferson Lakes park is always a joy to visit in September, fewer misquotes and hikers.

    over 6 years ago

    From TH at Dolly Varden CG to end of trail (junction of 18 & 1833) and back. Trail is divided in three sections, Lower, Middle, Upper. Division are where trail crosses road 18. Lower and Upper are flat. Middle has some elevation gain before returning to the creek. Middle section also part of a large forest fire. Lower and Upper sections are forest while the Middle section gets above the trees for nice views. Expect lots of company on the trail for the first 3 miles.
