Bummer. I must have missed the construction deadline. Curious, I read some articles that explain much of Scouter's Mountain will be developed into 600 homes as voted by Happy Valley City Council (against the wishes of most locals). While I won't argue either side since I'm not a Happy Valley local, I was disappointed not to be able to hike there today. I saw absolutely no way around the construction since the entire Boy Scout Lodge Road was completely blocked off and covered by huge machinery. Didn't even look like there was any angle to walk around the stuff if I parked in a neighborhood nearby. My one star doesn't reflect the park, but rather my lack of ability to go there.
