We are just a little over one week away from 5th annual Feast in the Forest.

We are just a little over one week away from 5th annual Feast in the Forest. It will be Sunday june 29th aprox ten miles north of the Delaware Water Gap. Just some of the things we will have. Meat and veggie lasagna, hamburgers hotdogs, veggie burgers, venison, cake, snacks, bagels, water, Soda, Ice cold beverages, made from barley and hops. we will also have a fair amount of chairs on hand. If you let me know we can slack hikers to the feast. Although the exact location of the feast is never revealed. safe to say you will find us. we start setting up around ten and the feast starts around eleven. last year we had over 25 hikers stop by, and everyone left with a smile on their face. Hope to smell a bunch of you there. BTW the ten mile hike from the DWG is a walk in the woods. Two highlights on that section you want to see. about a mile up the trail you will have to step up over a log that was put there for drainage. when you get there look to the right you will see a trail. walk in 15 feet and you are in the land of the fairies, when back on the trail you will come to Sunfish pond. The most southern glacial pond on the A T when you get to the north end you will see the cairns that many hikers have built. Further on you will come to the biggest rock cairn I have ever seen. Then continue on till you find the Feast in the Forest. Please share this post to help get the word out. thanks

CDT Hiker Hoopla September 20th, 2013 | Montana Wilderness Association

Green Flash, Breeze, Pappa Smurf, Muleskinner, Jester and Tickled Pink

This is not a list of the latest pop singer monikers in the tween world, but rather names for a different kind of celebrity. Celebrities in the trail community.

These are all thru-hikers that have journeyed the 3,100 miles on the Continental Divide Trail from Mexico to Canada this summer. These folks, and other hikers from around the country, are finishing up their epic trek in Montana right now and we’re going to throw them a party! Join us.

What’s a thru-hiker? Well, the term refers to hiking a long-distance trail end-to-end. Most CDT thru-hikers begin in New Mexico, walk through Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and then end in Montana at the Canadian border. No matter how you do it, the CDT is said to be one of the last, more rugged and more challenging trails that long distance hikers take on.

Pacific Crest Trail Days celebrated this weekend in Cascade Locks (video by Sunny Strader) | OregonLive.com


Long-distance trail hikers will gather this weekend at Cascade Locks to celebrate the seventh Pacific Crest Trail Days.

Enjoy Oregonian photographer Sunny Stader’s video of PCT “trail angel” Joe Shelley offering hospitality to through-hikers as they stop by his home in Cascade Locks during their journeys this summer on the PCT.

The event at Thunder Island in the Columbia River at Cascade Locks begins at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 6, and runs until 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8. Look for a full schedule of events at pcta.org, and also for a list of vendors.

The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail covers 2,600 miles between the Mexican and Canadian borders. Cascade Locks is the only incorporated city on the trail. The city is located where the trail descends the Cascade Mountains to make a near-sea live crossing of the Columbia River.

Trail days has free admission and free camping (Friday and Saturday) at the Port of Cascade Locks’ campground on Thunder Island. Campsites are on a first-come basis.

Friday is primarily an arrival and setup day. A screening of the John Muir Trail documentary, “Mile . . . Mile and a Half,” is planned for the outdoor screen on Thunder Island at 8 p.m.

Saturday features a gear fair, with local outdoor equipment vendors setting up booths to share tips on and the latest hiking gear, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Some sales will be available, but it’s more for introduction and education.

Free one-hour classes take place throughout the day on Saturday, beginning at 11:30 a.m. on hiking with dogs and continuing with through-hiking vs. backpacking, leave no trace and intro to yoga.

A gear raffle and silent auction is scheduled at 5 p.m., followed by a dinner break, then a slide show by event organizer and professional photographer Jason Waicunas of Outdoor Viewfinder. Saturday’s activities wind up with a live DJ party with dancing from 8:30 to 11 p.m.

Sunday offers a disc golf tournament on the Cascade Locks course. All proceeds benefit the Pacific Crest Trail Association.
