I am here across from Grand Lodge[masked]
Also, in the last five years I've not had to put my dogs on a leash but that is your choice.

The trail is easy to follow so if you choose you can turn-around anytime.
I've caught cold, so I'm not going.
How long is the hike? I'm not supposed to take my dog on hikes more than 3-4 miles
Carpooling anyone? If I drive, we can meet at the Parkrose Transit Center at NE Sandy Blvd & NE 96th Ave. That near I-205 and we can get on I-84 easily. Meet at 7:30. I can take 2 people and 2 dogs, if not giant breeds.[masked]

I just posted the directions. You can park on the side of the road. Look for my white Yukon. Don't forget snowpark pass.
Easy trail but a bit steep in places. Bring dog coats for short haired dogs, snowshoes, poles, food, 10-essentials, etc.

I can't make it this time. But hopefully another time.
Ahh..I committed to this way before I had made holiday plans. I cannot make it unfortunately, but really looking forward to future trips. When is the next one?

I go up a lot and found a few close-in snowshoe/dog friendly trails around Government Camp.

I go to the mountain once a week to hike and snowshoe with my dog... be glad to lead a snowshoe trip. Just did Timberline to Palmar-what views.

I've done Trilliam a few times. Once away from the lot and crowds, I unleash my dog. No issues.........
Do dogs have to wear something on their feet, to keep ice off and keep them from freezing?
I have never been with a dog. It has been yrs. since I went. Any level is welcome to join us.
We usually go out to the Clear Lake area on Mt. Hood. There are some places where the snowmobiles clear/smooth a path and then we rarely see them but have miles of great places to hike. Sometimes on the lake late enough in the season when it's been very cold and lots of snow pack.
There's a great place in Sandy to rent shoes from, too, that's cheaper than REI. It's called Otto's.

This will need to be in the winter. Maybe early Nov.?
It's one of those things where you have to "wait and see." I have a friend who was entered into two skijoring competitions the winter before last and both were canceled due to lack of snow. I've usually gone later ... December/January.
Here is a link to show some of the area. Mind you the snow as somewhat lousy on that trip but you can see some of the area. Oh, and we trekked almost 9 miles total and never saw a person. Heard a snowmobile but that was it; didn't see it.
Silver Star Mountain near Yacolt gets snow fairly early in the year. The people who went on the High Lonesome event were within 7 miles of it.
I once went snowshoeing with my previous dog at Trillium Lake (I think that's what it's called). It's a nice loop and my dog had a blast. 'Course we have to wait for the snow. :-)
Can only do if this is weekend, but sounds great!
Do any of you have a preferred area to go?
That sounds great!
I found out you can rent snowshoes very cheaply from places like REI. It would just be a matter of carpooling to the destination, setting the date, location, etc..
Is anyone interested in helping set this up?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
