Location  Santiam Wagon Road Ski

Where:  Fish Lake to Hackleman Creek


 Ken Ash came with me on this exploring trip. We started at the Fish Lake Guard Station Road on Highway 126 and skied down to the station, and then up the Old Santiam Wagon Road.

A ways up the road we spotted blue diamonds going off to the right, so we followed the diamonds, which eventually took us to Highway 20 just across from the Lava Lake Sno-Park. We then turned around and skied back to the junction and continued up the Santiam Wagon Road.

The only problem was a number of creek crossings, which kept this from being a number one tour. We eventually got to the where the wagon road intersects Highway 20 at Hackleman Creek, where we had lunch and then skied back.
