what trails are accessible:
With some COVID-19 closures still in place in National Forests and BLM lands, and with the Stay Safe At Home order still in place until further notice, it is advised that you not take unnecessary trips further than 50 miles from your home right now. However, we understand that hiking and being outdoors is what keeps many of us mentally sound and healthy, so if you do choose to hike, please stay close to home and DO NOT stop in any small towns!

In this week's new video I go over my backpacking gear (some new and some old) that I am using on my trips for the 2020 season.
Hike of the month:
Horsepasture Mountain via Saddle Trail is a moderate 7 mile out and back hike. The trail leads you through beautiful wildflower meadows and up to the 5,675 ft. summit of Horsepasture Mountain. From the top you will get views of Mt. Hood all the way down to Diamond Peak and all of the Cascade mountains in between!
