Do yourself a favor and hike the PCT section. I've done both and the OST is one of the most dusty, boring, lodgepole pine view I've ever hiked. I really liked the real PCT in that section as well as Summit Lake. 

Having said that, the south section of the OST as of a few weeks ago is blowdown-free except just near Crescent Lake. I hiked the northern section 2 years ago so I can't comment on those conditions. Diamond View Lake is the highlight of that section and along the creek at the northern end.

Have any of you heard anything about this section of the OST? Or do you know where I can get info on it? I'm in a place with very limited cell service.
