July 11, 1982
Eight of us left Eugene and met two hikers at Marion Forks Restaurant.
Since Marion Lake is one of Oregon’s most easily accessible
wilderness fishing lakes, we had to park our cars along way down the road
from the trailhead.
We stopped at Lake Ann and missed the three backpackers, however, we met
them at the top for lunch.
Good views of Mt. Jefferson, Marion Lake, Three Fingered Jack and others.
Elevation gain from trailhead is 2,151 feet.
We all enjoyed the 10-mile round trip and were the only hikers on the summit.
With the co-leaders Ralph Nafziger and Dorothy Leland were the following:
Jeanne Borup, Bob Foster, Shirley Froyd, Russel Hass, Dorothy Hayes,
Rose Hess, Connie Montgomery, Harlo and Marty Perrin, James Powell
and Mike Wright.
