Black Crater

August 27, 1995

In about 3½ miles the Black Crater Trail takes you up 2500 ft. to an elevation of 7251 ft. (higher than any mountain east of the Mississippi!). Black Crater is a mountain that you can easily climb in a morning, but it has views that rival those of higher Oregon summits. The views of the very nearby North Sister and the Belknap Crater lava flows are particularly dramatic. Seven of us enjoyed the unusually windless summit: Cheryl Berry, Don Jennings, Rita Johnson, Josh Ladau, Karen Myers, Ralph Olive and Bill Montgomery, trip leader. Rita, Josh and I also took a quick side trip into Proxy Falls on the way home.
