Black Butte

June 25, 1977

After a long ride in the cars, we finally found the Black Butte Trail Sign. For those interested people, we were unable to find the bottom of the Black Trail. However if you are interested in hiking from the halfway point, take HWY 126 (20) from Eugene towards Sisters. About six miles West of Sisters, turn left by Indian Ford Campground onto Road 1139. Drive a little over two miles, and turn left on Road 1318. Drive five miles to the Black Butte Trail Sign. Turn right and drive one mile to the trailhead.

It was a beautiful day but hot. On our long drive we were rewarded with sights of deer. Everyone seemed to enjoy the hike to the top of the butte and they all came home thirsty, hot, and with lots of sun tan. The leader had car problems; and all of her riders were able to tour the grand town of Sisters while the blue Buick received a new radiator hose. We were so thankful that so many Oregonians stopped to help the stranded hikers on HWY 20. And we were even more thankful that the blue Buick managed to return us to Eugene safely.

Hiking up Black Butte with the leader, Liz Glover, were Barbara Durchanek, Bea Fontana, Kate Gawf, Joella Hadland, Richard Heinzkill, Dave Minter, Vern Nelson, Karen Seidel, Ted Stern, Dorothy Turner, and Henrietta Richmond.
