Please be aware, Crater Lake National Park has seen quite a bit of late season snow fall. Wintry travel conditions persist on the PCT and the Crater Lake Rim as of mid-June with as much as six feet of snow in places above 5,500′. If attempting to travel through the Park please be prepared to navigate accurately and travel safely which may necessitate appropriate equipment such as snow shoes.

Equestrian obstacles in the Mount Hood region

PCTA Mount Hood Chapter logouts and efforts by all have greatly improved the trail after significant windstorm damage around Mt Hood. The section near Buck Peak, (TR#615 – 3/4 mile South, to 3 miles North) has not been cleared. It’s not as bad as the other areas were, but still not passible for stock.

The areas around the Zigzag Canyon and Little Zigzag Canyon are not yet to the point where they are stock friendly. Getting in and out of these two canyons requires some tricky equestrian skills to get up and down the steep backs and around the rocks.
