Wink 2010 Hells Canyon/Wallowa Valley Gathering

At this point (6-5-01) the main road FS39 through Hells Canyon Natíl Rec. area is washed out in some areas so plan accordingly if you are coming from the south.


2010 Hells Canyon/Wallowa Valley Gathering

June 17-20, 2010


Log house RV Park and Campground
66258 Lewiston Hwy (Hwy 3)
Enterprise, Oregon 97828

1-877-426-4027
http://loghouservpark.com/





Cost: $10.00 per tent per night. Pay our hosts Brian and Margaret when you arrive.

If you want to bring an RV please call and make your reservation with Brian. Tell him you are with the ADV group. rates about $28 nite + 10% discount

If you don't tent camp or RV and want to motel here's a link: http://www.wallowacountychamber.com/...es/lodging.php


Thursday June 17th: Ride in, set up and start getting to know riders you haven't met already
Friday June 18th: Connect with other riders and enjoy some great riding in the area, more people will be riding in and setting up that day/night.
Saturday June 19th: Go for a ride during the day
Saturday Evening: Potluck dinner. Our host will have BBQs available for us as well as refrigeration if needed. He also said he will be happy to help with getting supplies to camp if needed.
Sunday June 20th: Break camp and head home tired from having way to much fun.

See post 3 for rides to the gathering and planned rides while there.


There is a bathhouse with showers and we will have the main tent camping area near the bon fire pit plus another tent camp area away from the main area for the folks that want to be able to get away and have some quiet time.

Wifi is available at camp, the closer you are to the office the better it is. Cell service is also available although AT&T is a bit spotty.

There is fuel and food nearby the most important part ~ lots and lots of great riding.


Are you In?

Pot Luck Saturday 6:00 PM
PNWbuttercup has volunteered to haul some things down so we will have the basics to put together a fun potluck. The paper goods, a few knife for prep work, heavy duty foil, salt, pepper, cutting board, and what ever else I think I need to throw in will make itís way to camp. Brian, our camp host, will have two gas BBQ grills going for us to use. He also has a microwave and regular ovens if we need them.

About a mile from camp is a full sized Safeway store where supplies can be easily picked up on the way to camp.

Bring whatever meat you might want to throw on the grill and a side dish type of thing for the potluck. Iíll put out a list of ideas and you can sign next to what you think you will bring. This helps keep from have 85 cans of beans and no chips. Oh yeah, Iíll have a can opener there too.

Road Information



After some record rainfalls on the dry side there are roads that have been washed out. This thread has some info and pictures: Linky This is the Natíl Forests website with updates - - -> http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/w-w/conditions/

The main road FS39 (paved) through Hells Canyon Natíl Rec. area is washed out at the south end so plan accordingly. Itís closed from Hwy 82 to FS 66 which is the Fish Lake road and is also closed.

From camp you are still able to access Hess Rd. and you can ride to the Canyon Overlook using FS39.

Hess road is open however we have not had an update on the recent condition of it.

Upper Imnaha Rd. is open, this dirt/gravel road runs S. from Imnaha along the river and connects with FS39 N. of Hess Rd. and the Overlook.

Sat. 6/12/10: The last word is the road in to Hat Point Lookout Tower is still snowed shut but that's not official -

If you want the tracks PM your email address to: 650X aka Steep/Alan

Tweeny ride

Waiting for someone to post they want to lead a ride that is a skill/challenge level between the mellow ride below and the more challenging ride above. Any takers? There are at least a couple people interested.

Asphalt Ride
Spiral Hwy ride - Oremike and Road Ranger



Mellow Ride with Ladybug
Leave camp at 8:00 am, we'll go to Joseph for breakfast and take an easy paced stop and smell the flowers ride to Hat Point lookout tower.(I had this as the girly girl ride but the guys are welcome too). We will also stop to look for a geocache or two along the way and if you are not familiar with what the heck a geocache is check out the website - - - > www.geocaching.com


(Update 6-12-10 Ė I was told the road to Hat Point still isnít completely open, at least for four wheeled vehicles Ė We might make it to the lookout and why might not but it will be fun trying.)

Tips, ride suggestions, updates, etc.

It seems people post good information in threads like this but when it's time for the ride the good stuff is lost in all the posts. I'll transfer that info. here so it's all in one place you can refer to it again right before the weekend.

Don't forget your sunscreen and bug spray. With all the rain the last few weeks there just might be those buzzing, blood sucking, pests trying to join our party.

Steep and Rocky ride? I'm sure they will give me details on this soon.
Not sure about the girly girl part, but I want to make it up to Hat point sometime.

Steep and Rocky....I like the sound of that. :)

Ladybug, I'm planning on leaving on Thursday morning..

Cool, for now I'll put you on the fence and when you decide you can make it I'll move you up with the fun kids. You do know if you stay on the fence to long you'll get splinters in your backside.

I believe RCW is planning to take a ride to Hat Point, his riding style would be more to your liking than a girly girl ride.

If I can get the time off I might head down Wed. just so I can be there early. If I can't get the time off I'll probably head down Thurs. early morning.

I may do the same on the time off...gotta confirm a few things.

Whatever we do, should we just make a bee line and get down there or make a really long day of it and mosey down. :0 (yeah, its a long way to Mosey)

Kootenai Rider, I plan to mosey down the long way if I go Wed. but if I wait until Thurs. I'll probably "blast" (I'll be riding the Superbug ) to Lewiston then do dirt from Lewiston to Enterprise. I want to go to the Buckhorn lookout when it's not snowing.

Oremike, on the fence you go, watch out for the splinters.

Mrmagoolin thanks for the RV price info it being added.

Mutt2Jeff, you're on the IN list ~ how about Heather?

Fatherof4, it's terrific that your son is excited about this. I'll bet it's going to seem like forever until the weekend finally gets here.

We are planning a Saturday ride. For now all I can say for certain is it will not be Dug Bar or Hat point. I think there will be atleast 2 groups headed to those destinations. We will have something different to offer.
