Jefferson (OR) Conditions?

Wondering if anyone has been out on Jefferson recently? Heading that way in a couple weeks, and wondering if anyone can chime in with current beta? TIA

During the eclipse? Should be a nice spot... and crowded!

We're going in the day afterwards, hoping that limits the crowds quite a bit.

I heard on the radio a couple of days ago that there are big fires in the area that have closed much of the Willamette National Forest around Mt. Jefferson, including many roads and trailheads. Best call ahead to the rangers in Detroit, Oregon. Old number I have in my phone is 503-8 5 4-3 3 6 6. Probably still good.

Here's the latest - SOME trails closed (NOT ALL):

The radio report said they would be closed until at least Aug 22 - the day after the eclipse. :cry:

That's our permit entry date, so fingers crossed!
