Today's spot is about 2 1/4 mi walk, up about 2400 ft from the end of Herman Creek Rd in Cascade Locks, OR
My topo map shows a trail most of the way there. And a road that goes up to a trailhead only about 2 1/2 miles from the hash. The cross-country leg looks to be less than 1000 ft on a traverse, so (famous last words) a pretty easy crossing. Looks to be woods.
The road to the trailhead was gated, parking there and walking in would have added another mile, I guessed. I drove around and found a different trailhead that would have taken me up trail 406 Herman Creek Trail and would have added a little more walking, but it needed a parking permit, and that was in the other car.
But I walked up the trail a little ways anyway, tempting the wilderness parking police as much as I dared, then went to Cascade Locks and walked around the park.
