Angels and Devils and Fairys Oh My!

  • Apr 20, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

TOTAL MILES: ~9.5 miles
PACE: "quickish" (2-2.5 MPH)
PERMITS: none needed

**RSVPs will open at 8:00pm on Tuesday**

CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 40 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $4.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!

The forecast for this weekend is looking like a bit of a crap shoot, so I’m going to hedge my bets and try something that should be pretty rain or shine. The plan is to hike up to Angel’s Rest, stop for a break, then get back onto #415 and follow it east as it winds its way through the woods down to Wahkeena Spring and another rest stop. From there we’ll start the return leg with a short detour to check out Fairy Falls, and then tackle the climb along a ridgeline with some nice views to the viewless pile of rocks that is Devil’s Rest. Finally, we’ll follow an old logging road to a connector trail that will take us back to Angel’s Rest and our cars.

Come prepared for rain, mud, and possibly overgrown trails.

Please note that there is a MANUAL waiting list for this hike. What this means is that if a spot opens up everyone on the waiting list will automatically receive an e-mail notifying them of the opening. The first person (whether on the waiting list or not) to RSVP gets the spot.

NO DOGS, please.

What to bring:
• Sturdy hiking boots/shoes with at least one change of socks
• Three to Five light layers of clothing that can be adjusted or removed as necessary (NO COTTON!!!)
• Rain gear
• Safety whistle, preferably on a cord around your neck (highly recommended)
• The 10 essentials*
• Trekking poles (never a bad idea)
• Lunch, snacks and plenty of water

*Navigation, Sun protection, Insulation, Illumination, First Aid, Fire, Repair Kit/Tools, Nutrition, Hydration, Emergency Shelter. For a more detailed description, check out “The Ten Essentials” on the Portland Hiking Meetup Group’s FILES page.

    I was looking for Fairys, but couldn't find any. Other than that, the hike is definetely worth all 5 stars.
