    Sounds like a walmart party to me! But the shooters will get the blam as always for the condition of the place.

    This is a small area and won’t take long to cleanup. It sees a lot of use and gets messy often. It’s a place we need to keep in good condition.

    Bring some toys for some fun & safe recreational shooting after the cleanup!

    If you value the privilege of free recreation in Mt. Hood National Forest, join Trash No Land, Northwest Firearms, USFS and Clackamas County Dump Stoppers as we take a stand against trash on public land.

    Together, we’re going to make a difference!

    Anyone been to this spot recently, 45.110587, -122.061089?

    I went up there last Summer and haven't been back since. Just wondering what kind of condition it's in now. Last Summer it was fairly clean.

    Miller Road off Highway 26 milepost 38 Welches
    Update March 28 2017

    There are fish biologists working in the Sandy River adjacent to this Miller Road "Quary" every day now through the end of June from 8:00 am until 3:00pm. There is a posted closure on the BLM gate stating this.

    Please respect this and wait until after 3:00pm if you want to use this site, and pass the word to your friends. It will go a long way toward improving the reputation of our target shooting sport.

    There have been complaints of bullets coming near them, and they are rightfully uncomfortable with this.

    Funkmaster, I haven't been out to Miller to shoot since last fall, but gate was closed then as well. I used to live in Brightwood and have since moved to Sandy--. People shoot at Miller all the time and I could hear it from my house. As far as I know, the only restrictions are as per the BLM sign restricting times when fish biologists are on site. Some Yahoo painted "no shooting" on the gate, but I'm sure it's a local sick of the noise. Like I said, haven't been out there since Sept of 2017, but unless something has changed, I would say you're good.

    I drove by the other day and it looks like someone payed that also. The county it city would have put a real sign up not that garbage scratch. Someone up the road is probably tired of the noise and put that on the gate because it was never there before.

    Is Oz open this time of year or snowed in? If so, I guess Miller or Pit 36 are best options?

    The snow level has been kinda high. I'd imagine it might be a bit slushy at 3700', but I wouldn't expect it to be much. 5 Way is even lower at 3200, if it looks good there, then keep on goin!
