Young's Rock Trail

June 30, 1991

Confusion reigned as three hiking groups and a large bus group converged simultaneously on the S.E.H.S. parking lot early Sunday morning. After much milling around, six ambitious hikers — Marty Hathaway, Ben Jeffries, Kristen Kaminski, Eli Speval, Sandy Reul and leader Chuck Reul — left for Hills Creek Reservoir and the start of a steady 3,000-ft. elevation gain tramp up the Young’s Rock Trail to Moon Point. Upon leaving Campers Flat the trail traverses a mixed forest of stands of Douglas fir, Ponderosa pine and incense cedar. After two hours up a constantly steep grade, the first view of Young’s Peak was a rewarding sight. A short break was taken to view this 1,000-ft. high monolith. We then pushed on another hour to Moon Point, a rock promontory with a spectacular view of the Middle Fork valley, and broke for lunch. Having refueled, we mellowed out as we strolled through the flower-filled meadows and lush forest back to the welcome sight of our cars.
