I found a copy of an oblique sketch map of the Mountain Loop area. Follow these to my flickr site for a hi-res version. They are undated but the Big Four Inn is shown. That burned down in 1949 so I'm using a date of 1940.

Very cool!  A wealth of trails, shelters, lookouts now gone...
which would be used now, more than ever.

Cool, puzzlr. Note the old trail to Green Mountain Lookout; that was abandoned in 1948 when the road was put in for logging (I'll have to double check on the year, but pretty sure it was 1948). And several trail connections aren't there that made up the Cascade Crest Trail; it did exist then, but perhaps some connections were boot paths.

Some of this map looks very much like the hand drawn Nels Bruseth map, unofficially dated 1931. It's online somewhere; I'll see if I can find it. Perhaps George Winters posted it on this site.  Bruseth took one of the photos in the brochure. He died in 1957.

Whitechuck trail is on the south side of the river. But I think it was put on the north side relatively late, anyway (1960's?).

But yeah, since you know when the Inn burned down, it was before then anyway, so my post doesn't help pinpoint it closer to your date!

Wait. What's the deal with the Downey Creek trail(s)? & look how far Sulphur Cr trail goes. I recall Karen Sykes saying that trail went waaay up Sulphur Creek back in the 20's or so.

Here's the Bruseth map. I wonder if he did work on the USFS brochure.

Bruseth is credited on one of the photos, as is Huntoon
