      Of all the eastside trailheads the road to the Taboose trailhead is the
      worst. It's deeply rutted. Take it really slow. The first two miles
      are a slow uphill slug through sand until the trail reaches solid
      ground. Water is available from Taboose Creek for 100 yards or so just
      at the point where the trail turns from sand to duff but not again
      until it crosses to the south side and climbs. The trail is a bugger
      until it reaches an overgrown section near the creek. This is just
      about the only spot you can drop a tent until you hit the pass. From
      the creek crossing to the top of the pass; be thankful you're not
      climbing Shepherd Pass. At least Taboose climbs straight up.

      take care

      Thanks to all who responded. Sounds worse than Sawmill (which has its virtues, but is tough). Happy trails. Bill
