    Another Oregon Hang.

    Been talking to a few members and would like to plan another hang somewhere around the last weekend of July/early August. Somewhere between Portland and the coast (off hwy 26 or 6) Or somewhere off the coastline in that area?

    There are a lot of camps and areas out there that we can basically drive to and have ample trails to go explore and such. As well as an abundance of trees!
    I will be exploring locations over the next month and looking around.
    Anyone else have ideas of locations in the area?

    Good idea

    The wife and I are planning a long trip the last week in july sat thru friday so somewhere near the pct would be good. Also family camping a week later sat thru thursday on the coast. if your hanging anywhere close we may just make our plans around that.

    As stated in the PM, I'll be game. Be nice to get together before my son goes back to S.C. We'll get a few in before then as well. I'll keep y'all informed. I'll not hijack this thread when I post plans so keep a lookout for other threads.

    Another option if everyones cars have a bit of clearance (seen Subarus make it) is The Rock Lakes. (camp at middle) It does require about a mile of hiking after a pretty bad road. But the place is really really Beautiful and I have never seen it crowded. Has perfect trees and awesome trout fishing as well as trails.
    Its hard to describe... Snow should be clear by then (crossing fingers)

    I am not available for any more hanging plans until October. LOL I already have my Summer planned out. Leaving next Wednesday for 3 weeks, only to return to a deck replacement project that will probably fill all of my time before my JMT hike in Aug. I do not get back until Labor Day, then off to Colorado for 2 weeks. So, I will have to miss the Summer plans of others.

    Im going to scout some locations this week if anyone has Ideas.
    Also.. Not everyone can handle hard hike ins and such.
    So would we prefer a drive to location with good hiking options?
    Or do we prefer a short hike in location?

    There are a lot of cool places that avoid crowds that are about a mile hike or so.

    Pictures forth coming.
