Forest Road Hike South of Silver Star Mtn

Hike Distance: 7.1 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 815.8 miles

Elevation Gain: 1004 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 98789 feet

A brand new hike area for me and the drive was scary in the last mile.  The last mile of the drive was on a single lane road, and I ran into a loaded logging truck that was going downhill!  Once I got to the trailhead, the parking area was on level ground and out in the open.

This area had been logged recently and so isn’t very worthy of much discussion or photos. 😦  I don’t know that I’ll go back to this area.  The best part about this area was that I found a small waterfall, that was partially obscurred, and there was a pretty good view of Mt. Hood.

Other than those high points, the walk was okay, with an occasional clump of trees that provided shade.  I only saw one vehicle, and they stopped to offer a ride, which I politely declined.  Still nice to get out and get some exercise!
