Kitson Ridge above Oakridge

April 11, 1981

Friday night with lousy weather, three members called to say if raining in the morning, don’t wait for them! But they must have had spring fever like myself as they all showed up even in the rain. Seven members and nonmembers drove to Oakridge with a stop to put on raingear and warm up at my cabin after which we took the road up Bald Mountain to the Kitson Ridge trailhead. The start of the new trail is 3000 ft. and the rain turned to snow as we parked. The trail climbs slowly to the ridge in about a mile, with several inches of beautiful snow, by the time we discovered a large Indian-Cave for our coffee break. We later continued on the old (75 years at least) ridge trail till signs of maintenance and blazes ended, then back to the cave for lunch. This is the largest cave I have found in my years of hiking this area and it really made the day for all of us. Those on the trip were Lorene Bressler, Peter Cecil, Martha Mitchell, Fred Schepman, Charlene Wilbur, Margaret Wiese & leader Donn Chase.
