Salt Creek Falls Hike

Hike Distance: 0.8 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 853.9 miles

Elevation Gain: 195 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 83649 feet

The owner of the Chinese restaurant, Lee, urged us to go see Salt Creek Falls, and it didn’t disappoint!  We only took a small loop, that had a viewpoint above, in the middle and near the bottom of the falls.  It’s the second highest falls in Oregon.  Definitely worth going to!

I looked on a map and found the trail system out of this area would give many hiking opportunities, and we will definitely visit again!


PCT North Past Rosary Lakes Hike

Hike Distance: 10.7 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 841.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 1448 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 81732 feet

We had such a wonderful time on a previous hike in this region of the PCT that we decided to visit again today!  We parked in a small parking lot just off the Hwy, that is meant for PCT day hikers.  We encountered a very large group that was obviously part of a paid hiking service, at the TH, and saw them until we passed by Upper Rosary Lake

It was a very nice day and surprisingly very few mosquito’s. 🙂  To say the lakes were spectacular would be an understatement.  We spent a good deal of time taking photographs and just enjoying the beauty.  We only bumped into a few people, except for the large hiking group, during the hike.  We ended up stopping at a viewpoint that overlooked the Rosary Lakes and surrounding countryside.  There was also a view of Diamond Peak from this viewpoint.  A truly spectacular second day of our vacation!
