Mt. Adams: Stagman Ridge - Horseshoe Meadows 10 mi., 1,800' gain, 6,000' peak

Spectacular views of Mt. Adams, plenty of old growth, and enrapturing flowers! A nap among the flowers is highly likely Bring binoculars and cameras: this is a ramble more than a hike. Pace 1.5 miles/hour, or slower (including breaks). Feel free to stop and photograph vistas, watch for birds, or track elk and coyote.

Brewpub to follow.

Wilderness area regulation restricts attendance to 12 heartbeats, so no dogs (that would be one less person). If you are interested, please add your name to the waiting list. I will manually add people to the "yes" list. People who have hiked with me before will get preferential treatment. Meet at 7:00 AM, back around 9:00 PM (Sunrise: 5:50 AM Sunset: 8:44 PM)

    I think there may be some confusion because the Meetup map link is incorrect and shows a different location than Gateway. It shows 55th and Multnomah. This isn't the first time there have been problems with the Meetup maps. Yes, we were at Gateway TC and the group was easily visible on the corner of 99th and NE Multnomah outside the TC parking garage.

    Mapquest this and you'll see where we were: NE 99th Ave & NE Multnomah St, Portland, OR 97220. That is the SE corner of the Gateway Park & Ride garage, and we were on the sidewalk there.

    No Tom, I didn't get any email with your cell# or I would have called. 99th and Multnomah is not Gateway Transit Center, is it? Were you referring the park and ride at the Gateway where the light rail is? There is where I waited. Where is 99th & Multnomah? Were you folks at the park and ride parking lot?

    Tom did a terrific job of leading this hike.

    I was at 99h and Multnomah from 7:00 - 7:20 AM yesterday. Sorry we missed you :-( Did you get an email from me on Thursday with my cell #?

    Nice hike! Tom thank you very much

    I map posted is not at Gateway Transit Center. 9900 NE Multnomah is not Gateway Transit Center, is it? Isn't the Gateway transit center located right behind Oregon Clinic, by Gateway Fred Meyer? Maybe that's where I went wrong. Oh, I am so disappointed in myself.

    I am so sorry that I had missed you folks. I woke up early first thing and drove to the Gateway Transit Center and waited from 6:45 am to 8:00 am and didn't find anyone. Did I get the location wrong? I wanted to hike so bad since today is such a beautiful day. You folks do meet at the Gateway Transit Center, don't you? I was at the Park and Ride parking lot. Maybe I was waiting at the wrong spot? Please advise, so I can meet you folks again next time.

    Also, I don't want to stop for beer afterwards (can't drink it anyway - gf) so if anyone wants to head directly back, I am happy to drive.

    I am driving from Sellwood and would be happy to give anybody a lift who is on the way on the East Side

    Hello Elizabeth,
    There are in fact 2 Elisabeth's, as you can see I spell my name with an S and not a Z. I wanted to send you a message earlier but saw that that was blocked. I hope that this clears up any suspicion you may have :)

    I'd like to carpool from downtown Portland to Gateway. I can either drive or meet you near a convenient freeway on ramp (e.g., SW 13th & Market gets you onto i-405 in seconds). If I drive, I'll be leaving from SW 11th & Main. Let me know.

    Last weekend I only encountered snow on north faces above 6,000' on the SE corner of Mt Hood, so I don't expect much on Adams, which is further east than Hood.

    July 27, 2012

  • Mary V.

    Here's another look at what we might be up for: http://www.portlandhikers.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5032. That trip was in early June, 2010. I had snow at 5300' (est.) on the NW slopes of Mt. Hood last week. Stagman is a SW slope and its been a sunny week, but we are going higher. Tom, or anyone else, any idea how much snow we are likely to run into?

    I just RSVP to this hike, but it shows that there is 2 Elizabeth, one of them is a spam. That lets me worry, does anyone know how to get rid of that? I really want to hike with a safe group since I have never done this before.

    RE: the "12 hearbeats," my wife asked what happens if you are pregnant with triplets? :)
