Attempted OR section D on June 4. Three miles north of Hwy 138 started hitting up to 5′ snow drifts over trail; still navigable. Some downed trees, nothing big. Near Mt. Thielsen Trail met two southbound hikers who came from Windigo Pass, said 9’+ drifts for about 15 miles on and off between Thielsen & Windigo, especially around Sawtooth.

Early to Mid March(when I traveled)

Lots of large fallen trees over trail starting around 1740(Hobart Bluff) and gets significantly more frequent and difficult to cross near 1749(Hyatt Prairie Rd)thru to 1757(Howard Prairie Lake).

Fallen tree obstacles likely could have continued father along trail but that is where I stopped.

Hiking- Fairly easy to climb over most, unless multiple trees on top each other or navigate off the path to go around id too difficult.

Equestrian- Could become difficult. Most trees are likely too big to jump, but can be circumnavigated. A few trees fell over the trail that was traveling on the side of steep slopes which would dangerous to cross near there.

Multiple trees down along the Pacific Crest Trail northeast of the Pilot Rock trail juncture. The trail is blocked by at least a half dozen trees and some areas are challenging to get around. I only went about a mile or two northeast of Pilot Rock, so I imagine there are many more trees down I did not see…
