    It burns

    Well folks, it looks like weíre going to have a lot of trailwork to do throughout the coming years. So many fires burning right now.

    Iíve heard King-Castle is ablaze...

    I moved from Eugene to Salem this spring once ďshelter in placeĒ happened. Catamount Trail in Silver Falls SP, Shelberg Falls and the stash network in WeyCoís Snow Peak unit became my go to trails, it appears that all of these are currently on fire.

    Damn.

    Canít go outside right now, itís too smokey to breath out there. How you doiní?

    Kind of crazy, my wife and I did two laps on Catamount yesterday. We couldn't even smell any smoke. Looking at the current fire map it appears the top is probably already gone.

    I am kicking myself for not riding the Pyramid Loop last week. Hopefully there is a sanctuary in The Gifford Pinchot this weekend.
    Pretty sad news all around. Appreciate your thoughts Davey!

    Thanks, my friend. Sorry you didnít get to ride the Pyramid Loop last week. Iíve still never ridden it (and at 66, probably never will. My days of enjoying brutality on the bike have passed, Iím afraid. And from all accounts, that loop is brutal.)

    Moving right along, hereís a map of my local turf and the (red) fire thatís growing.

    Currently called the Beachie Creek Fire, evidently its official name may change to the Santiam Fire inasmuch as its become a combination of several smaller fires.

    The small blue patch in the lower right corner is Detroit Lake. Salem is barely off the map on the left. The ragged red fingers at the bottom of the fire are reaching toward Silver Falls State Park. Shelberg Falls is already within the red zone.

    Itíll get worse before it gets better.

    This is all really terrible. The landscape will never look the same. My daughter is trying to get home from Eugene and there's still one corridor from west to east. Fire everywhere else.

    Damn, this is one hell of a rough year. Hoping these winds die down some more.

    The new #RiverSide fire is looking scary - quite close to residential.

    In looking at the caltopo heat map I think Kings Castle may have been spared. Resolution not real great and it was right near the fire boundary so it is possible the bottom 1/4 mile or so was burnt.

    OCC looks to be spared for right now. Hoping winds die down, rains arrive, and fires at least stop growing. Incredible seeing the growth in the Ripplebrook/Riverside fire as well as the two down by Detroit Lake.

    Any word on the NUT? I have friends that were camping in Idleyld Park and they were woken up and evacuated by State Trooper escort to the West. They aren't familiar with the area and had only been there one night. As they were escorted out, they videotaped the fire burning on both sides of the road (not raging) and visibility looks to be about 25 yards.That was all much earlier this morning.
    Carpe Diem!!

    No worries, I guess we'll all know soon enough. It's my all time favorite trail (so far) and Ive been telling my friends for years they need to get on it before it becomes Wilderness. I didn't even think about the possibility of a fire (though it's obviously a very real threat every season).

    Stay safe up there!! We moved our October PNW trip over to Moab. @Nat will be sorry he didn't get to see me in Bend

    Pretty much everything on the west side is shut down now as day 2 winds down.

    All of the Willamette and Hood NF.

    All state-managed (ODF) forests, including Tillamook and Santiam (Shellburg Falls), as well as Blackrock.

    McDonald and Dunn (Oregon State University) research forests. All of Oregon State Universityís Corvallis campus is officially closed as well.

    Silver Falls State Park

    All NW Oregon BLM-managed lands, including Sandy Ridge, Alsea, and Whypass.

    Did I miss anything?

    No wind reversal in the forecast for another 24 hours.

    All of Siuslaw NF is closing today.

    Latest CNAQ 1.33km PNW run from the USFS BlueSky forecast shows wind reversal this afternoon and smoke moving out of the Valley. Thatís the good news for the west side and bad news for the east side.

    Also smoke from the Echo Mountain Complex in the Coast Range near Otis will start moving into the Valley at the same time, moderating the good news above.

    Its been surprisingly clear in Sisters the last few days, but when the winds change back to typical later today, that's going to change in a big way. I'm afraid we'll be in the smoke until it starts to rain on the West side. 200,000+ acres burned puts out smoke for a long time.

    My wife is a deputy DA in Jackson County, and she was told by a LE colleague that Steamboat Inn burned down. I would think that doesn't bode well for NUT.

    Rogue Valley area trails appear unaffected so far. Entire blocks of Talent and Phoenix are gone. Thousands displaced.

    Nearly got stranded on my Middle Fork camp spot. It's about 1 mile off the paved road kinda near Indigo Springs on the river. Worked from about daylight untill 1pm cutting myself out with a hand saw, my car jack as leverage, and straps using my van to pull stuff away. Couple of huge trees came thundering down close by which was intense.
    Finally my fears were realized when a 36"-45" tree lay between me and the paved road. I noticed some fresh logging across the street and decided to walk down in there. Low and behold a guy working their mill was on site with a chainsaw. Here I am in flip flops, filthy from working my ass off and no shower in week, dripping sweat, and this guy doesn't hesitate for second to come down this unknown road and help me out. Dangerous too as it was still windy AF.
    The drive home was surreal. Never EVER I have seen smoke like that go on forever. From the drive out on 58 all the way to Portland... smoke.

    From looking at the satellite data heat map I think Marstars and above were spared on the NUT. So Deer Leap and Dread and Terror should be good although I donít think Dread and Terror ever got cleared this year. I have only ever ridden those sections, so I canít speak for the quality of the lower sections that are almost certainly fubared but they are likely close to fully wiped out.

    Also the satellite data shows that Shellburg was likely totally wiped out and parts of Catamount lost too.

    What a bummer. But with the wind switching directions and being relatively calm they should be able to contain a good portion of these fires and limit growth bigly time until the winter rains set in.

    Yeah, a friend texted about an hour ago to say the Archie Creek Fire hit the NUT. Sounds like just the lower sections for now... we'll have to keep watching to see how things progress.

    I'm in Minnesota now, watching closely (despite the national news focusing almost completely on California) as so many of my beloved Northwest places get burned. Never seen this scenario before, of fires starting high up in so many different drainages and then sweeping down westside valleys all at once. Just surreal even to think about. Now they're talking about the Riverside and Santiam fires merging? WTF?! Just insane.

    Of course the forests will grow back - eventually - and with effort many of the trails can come back. But when you've lost whole towns, a lot of people's lives are never going to be the same. Talent and Phoenix mostly gone? Mill City, Gates, Detroit, Lyons too? We even thought about buying a lot to build a cabin in Detroit at one point. Hard to even process this. I've almost always gone up Santiam to get to Barbie Camp, and for me it's especially sad to see that area so hard hit.

    My wife and I still have a lot of friends in Oregon, including a few who had to evacuate their homes, and quite a few more that went to Level 2 on Tuesday evening. Some of them in suburban areas close to cities too, not just out in the countryside. And how in the actual eff does Mount Angel, miles of fields and orchards away from the mouth of Santiam Canyon, go to level 2? This is just crazy. In the Portland area, my coworkers are saying it's way more smoke than they've ever seen - and that's something, considering some of the recent fire seasons.

    Stay safe everyone. Know that people from afar are thinking of you, and hoping for no further destruction.

    If you haven't seen it, this NOAA satellite loop from Tuesday puts the scale of the fires in perspective. Maybe not click this if it will be triggering and you've been traumatized this week, but it's pretty dramatic:

    I work for the Pacific Crest Trail and have been monitoring everything pretty closelyóit's downright apocalyptic. Don't assume that anything that's been spared so far will remain sparedómost of these big fires in Oregon are 0% contained so will continue expanding uncheckedóall depends on wind direction.

    I'd say the entire NUT (or at least most of it) will be burned. Breaks my heart to see the North Umpqua go up in flamesósuch a beautiful place!

    Ditto for the Holiday Farm Fire in the McKenzie Valley. Right now Kings Castle, O'Leary, and the MRT look safe...but I wouldn't be surprised if the fire expands to the east and burns all those too. normally they'd have over 1,000 firefighters on a fire this sizeóbut resources are spread so thin they barely have 200. :-( It's just gonna keep burning until it rains!

    The scale of these are crazy - the ~150k acre riverside is about 1 mile from merging with the already merged Beachie Creek/Lionshead 300k acre fire.

    That is true SWriverstone, these could be burning until the end of October. Definitely not out of the woods yet and the fire line priorities wonít and shouldnít be recreational areas at the moment. Though there are enough houses around some of these trails they will be priorities by default.

    Photos of the Almeda Fire I took from my house in north Ashland. These are looking north up the valley towards Talent.

    Since I last posted, the Siuslaw and Umpqua National Forests have completely closed, as well as Hood River County (Post Canyon) and most of the Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest.

    Itís been a week stuck indoors and Iím going stir crazy from cabin fever. Want to get out of this bowl of smoke sooo badly (the Willamette Valley.)

    I know Iím no worse off than a zillion others and in fact far better off than those whose homes / property / livestock remain threatened or have already lost these things. I know several and am heartbroken for them.

    Meanwhile... undeniably restless. I thought of heading to the Ochocos to get away and perhaps find clear skies, assuming the valley is holding stagnant smoke while the remainder of the stateís air has become comparatively clear as west-to-east weather moved thru.

    Wrong. Looking at ODOTís webcams at Ochoco & Keyes Summits prove thereís smoke there, too. Hazardous air according to the internets.

    Gonna have to sit here in the house for a few more days, I guess. Okay, I better quit complaining now. Sorry for the whining. Best of luck to everyone while we twiddle our thumbs awaiting the rain.

    I might have to resort to this. When you say Horse Creek are you talking about Cape Mtn? Sorry, my brain is addled; trying to remember where Horse Creek is and all I can come up with is Horse Creek Lodge in McKenzie Bridge.

    I'd head to the coast too, their cams look clear. Crabs are supposed to be running great right now. Throw some pots and have a beer for the rest of us stuck inland right now.

    Head SE Sparty....temps in the 90's in Hurricane which generally means low 80's up on Gooseberry, Guacamole and Little Creek Mesas. Or take Nat's advice and head for CO where it's in the mid 60's in Crested Butte. @smokan just ran a trip there and it looked beautiful though the colors are behind schedule.

    I'd be afraid to head west then have shifting wind blanket the rest of the country with our atmosphere. Air quality in Portland has been apocalyptic the last 3 days. Roughly 3-4 block visibility...crazy times.

    It burns

    Whatís the over under on public lands in Western and Central OR re-opening any time soon? Anyone hearing any agency chatter?

    I hope Siuslaw and BLM Northwest districts change their policy if our forecasted rains this week pan out - but Iíd understand if they didnít.

    The limited intel I've heard is Tillamook SF opening this weekend, maybe.

    I've also heard Willamette NF potentially closed to public through Thanksgiving to determine extent of damage and ensure safe recreation.

    From friends you know in the agency or sources you canít name?

    Iíd hope if they do that itís just Detroit Sweet Home and McKenzie Ranger Districts - and Middle Fork gets a reopen. Unburned blowdown shouldnít have the same slope stability and overhead trail hazard concerns as the other districts, and shouldnít be much different from typical early season conditions - or maybe I donít have the complete picture ...

    Agency contact from McKenzie. But this was late last week and he wasn't really sure.

    I agree that it makes sense to reopen Middle Fork much earlier than either Sweet Home/McKenzie.

    I'd wager there'll be tons of downfall and trail litter from Timponogas down through Middle Fork. Bummer as it seemed to me there was a TON of work done to the Middle Fork descent down through Indigo Springs.

    * I'd also use a bit caution if you plan to enter the gorge at Chuckle Springs. I was camped by there when the winds came through (had zero knowledge of impending storm) and could here substantial booming rock fall through there.

    Yeah I donít disagree with you there Whalenerd - basically Iím saying unrideable isnít the same as ďunsafe for recreationĒ or ďposes a strain for Fire/EMS resources.Ē

    The burn areas are totally different and in many cases slope stability analysis may be needed in key areas.

    For sure, just putting my experience out there as a data point. I'd have no problem going right back out to my camp and points beyond just to check it out.

    Also yeah- glad you are unscathed (a) getting trapped with all that blowdown and (b) being lucky that no methheads or s*%#heads up Highway 58 / Road 22 started any illegal fires over that weekend that got out of control!!!

    You can also ride the beach. Still mostly flat with little technical interest except beach logs, rocky outcrops, and the occasional stream running across, but it beats walking by a few miles (per hour). You can crank out a lot more distance than beachcombers, and enjoy the changing seascape at a quicker but still very pleasant, soothing - and healing - pace.

    I've ridden several separate sections of the north coast that are a few miles long (Cannon, Manzanita, Rockaway, Netarts-Oceanside, etc.) and had fun doing it. You won't make a day of it in any one place unless you do Gearhart to Warrenton, but you can still put together a whole day of it if you're willing to move beaches. Probably don't want to go to Lincoln City right now, but their beach is a bit short and steep for biking anyway. Most recently, last fall I had a very enjoyable time riding the Netarts Spit, up from Cape Lookout State Park and back.

    Your 29+er will handle most Oregon beaches just great. Just keep an eye on the tide, of course (and remember the longer distances you cover can get you pinned more easily between headlands as the tide comes up), but it doesn't take too much caution or awareness to avoid the dangers.

    Oh yeah, one more obvious tip: wash your bike off afterwards, even if it didn't get wet.
