Moore Creek/Bobby Lake

August 27, 2000

At the trailhead near Davis Lake we assembled for a brief orientation from Dave Stone, conservation chairman of the Eugene Chapter of the Audubon Society. Moore Creek is in a proposed Maiden Peak Wilderness Area extending from Charlton Lake south to Rosary Lakes. At 50,000 acres it comprises the largest roadless area still unprotected in the Oregon Cascades. We began our hike under a cloudless sky surrounded by Ponderosa and lodgepole pine. The trail parallels Moore Creek and as we hiked west to Bobby Lake on the Cascade Crest the forest abruptly changed to mountain hemlock, spruce, noble fir and white pine, trees that are characteristic of cooler, wetter climates. We enjoyed lunch with a cool breeze at Bobby Lake. Two of us went swimming. I’d like to thank Dave Stone for recommending this hike and for all his work promoting the establishment of a Maiden Peak Wilderness. Enjoying this fine summer day were Elliot Aronin, Leona Devine, Shirley Froyd, Jennifer & Nick Hewko, Dick Hildreth, Sandra Larsen, Helen Liguori, Joe Scheibe, Clare Tucker, Sheila Ward, Dave Stone and trip leader Dave Predeek.
