Rooster Rock

May 26, 1982

The Willamette Trails Booklet describes this trail starting near Fernview Campground on the South Santiam River as, “not easy because of the continuously steep grade for 2.l miles, climbing 2,000 feet.” Two hours of continuous conversation and walking brought us to the former look-out site. The sun played peek-a-boo and the clouds dropped a few snowflakes on us this chilly May day. Yellow violets, calypso orchids, trillium, anemone, flowering current, erythronium, and bear grass were some of the flowers we saw. After lunch and good views of the valley we continued north on the unmaintained trail toward Moose Mountain before returning to the cars. Rooster Rockers were Norm Benton, Helen Hughes, Catherine Jones, Kathy Ryan, Fred Schepman and leader Margaret Wiese.
