My brother is visiting from the Midwest (first time in the PNW area) in mid-September, and we've agreed to set aside the Sunday for a day trip wheeling.
So two things -
1) I'm looking for a good place that gives him a scenic representation of the area. I've heard you can cross the Cascades on trails only, which would be a cool way to spend the day IMHO. Without any recommendations like that, I'll likely end up at Reiter.
2) Who wants to go with us?
dang, I really wanted to learn that route too, but this is the big Meet and Greet for the PNWJeep group over at Evans Creek. Please take good notes on the route you use so I can try it another weekend.
Made the run - it was a decent trail, but REALLY easy. Heck, it was harder finding it than it was running it. Really dry most of the trail, but a small mud pit towards the end by the river.
Ran it W to E, and then came back via the Chinook Pass. It is tight in places. My buddies TJ went through a lot of trees, turns and bridges with room to spare where I was rubbing in the 4-dr JK. Still, made it through everything with just a few new pinstripes.
(Every time I scratch my AEV hood, I cringe a little bit, but I'm getting over it mostly now that it's happened so much)
Can you help me out? I'd like to do the same trip you did - where did you enter the trail? Where did you leave it? Where there any places where it was hard to tell which way was the real trail, and if yes, what's the secret?
