Bunchgrass Ridge

October 26, 1974

This was a “Search & Seekers” trip to a ridge east of Oakridge which we have looked across on from Mt. David Douglas. It had several open meadows and an old trail. We drove the Willamette Hwy. to the railroad overpass then turned off on Rd. #2158 (the Eagle Creek road), drove this to what we thought would be the end in an old cutting area but found out the road had been extended down into the Black Creek canyon. Managed to pick up the old trail which headed west along the south side of the ridge. The old tread was fairly discernable but with animal trails going off every little while which caused us to lose it every so often. By noontime we had reached an open meadow with a good view of “Hell’s Half Acre” and surrounding mountains, so lolled in the grass eating our lunches and visiting. When driving back down the road we looked across to the ridge and saw that we had not quite gone far enough to enter the big meadows. Another time we won’t have to spend so much time hunting for the trail and should be able to reach these meadows. Those on the trip were: Mary Bridgeman, Peter Cecil, Charlene Marshall, Don, Barbara & Susan Payne, Helen Smith (leader) and Paula Vehrs.
