      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

? Westside Road / Tahoma Creak Trail Conditions

Recommended Posts

Heading up in a couple wks to do Success Cleaver followed by Sunset Ridge. Tahoma Creak trail had a lot of damage last year and I know it got hit pretty hard during the flood. Recent TRs (Skykilo) seem to confirm this. Anyone been up there recently? If so, any beta would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Thanks Sky. Did a lot of that last year so can imagine the joy to be had at present. Although I'm sure we'll enjoy boulder hopping, may take the creak bed up to the washout before the suspension bridge. Asuming it's still there?

Update: The Tahoma Creek trail remains a mess, but the West Side Road is in much better shape. A trail has been flagged and cleared through the river bed, and the trees in the blowdown cut. The road is now bike-able, with just a couple of sections that would require carrying the bike. There is some flagging marking a route on sections of the old TC trail.

excellent(!) so long as you weren't us last wk. we tried to permit for tahoma creak approach on the 18th but ranges at Longmire gave us thumbs down. Said engineers concluded suspension bridge was structurally unsound. Ended up approacing west side from Longmire. Not great, as bridges at kautz creek are out and 8 mile trail makes a long approach even longer.

The bridge is reopen, cleared by the engineers and work completed by MRNP crews.
