’Round Old Baldy, Coburg Hills
March 8, 1981
Starting up Road 17-2-8, backside of Old Baldy, our party of nine Obsidians
tramped some very muddy trails and old, disused logging roads in the Coburg
Hills to reach the top of Mt. Armitage, a delightful spot for lunch with
extensive views of Fern Ridge Lake and the Coast Range.
Continuing on, crosscountry, we passed Channel 9 TV tower and took a further
rest stop on 2,990' Old Baldy.
Back down 17-2-8 a way, then on and up steep Lockard Road to a mossy, open
overlook of Hayden Bridge area.
A prolonged rest here in the bright sunshine was most welcome.
One final plunge down a little-used gully returned us all to Barry’s
shuttle car parked on McKenzie View Road.
A pleasant 10-mile walk on an early-Spring day.
Walking were Barry Beck, Gladys Grancorvitz, Lee Hatch, Karen Houglum,
Anne Montgomery, Betty Legris, Bonnie Ledford, and Peter and John Cecil, leader.
P.S. Thank you Gladys: Your finding the log leash I had lost last December 22
just made my day!!!!!!
