Three Creeks Lake-Sparks Lake
August 15, 1987
Since this was a long drive to the trailheads and a long hike, both cars left Eugene at 0700.
Hal Busby, Lindsay Pierce and Bob Foster went via the McKenzie Pass and stopped for a short hike
into Hand Lake.
They arrived at the Three Creeks trailhead to Park Meadow and started hiking at 1000.
(They tried to drive to the Park Meadow trailhead just off Three Creeks Road but found the route so
rough and full of rocks that they returned to the main road and continued on into the trailhead at
Three Creeks Lake.)
Ruth and Wayne Lill arrived at the Fall Creek trailhead after traveling through Oakridge and
Century Drive and started hiking at 0945.
The parties missed having lunch together at the pass between South Sister and Broken Top by about
Car keys were exchanged and a short break and visit were enjoyed in view of North, Middle and
South Sister and Broken Top, and we started hiking again at 1400.
We had perfect weather for this trip and both parties arrived at their cars at about 1730 and were
home by 2030.
Those making the trip were Bob Foster, Lindsay Pierce and Ruth Lill,
with Wayne Lill and Hal Busby (leaders).
