Backpacking Suggestion for 6

Return to Message Board

There are six of us, living in Portland, who are planning on going backpacking ~ and we would like to get YOUR suggestions of swell spots to go that would be no further than 2 hours away.  We go for two nights ~ leave Monday, hike in, camp, and then hike out and head home on Wednesday.  We would like to avoid mosquitoes (!!), but we need to be near some sort of water source.  In the past (we have done this since 1999) we have gone to Eagle Creek, Bear Lake, Badger Creek, and Elk Meadows ~ not excessively long, but good hikes with backpack gear on!  thanks, in advance, for your ideas and suggestions!
