A lovely sunny day greeted three hikers for an early spring outing to the top of Castle Rock.
Snow blocked the last part of the road but none was on the trail.
The trail was in good condition but we did clear scotch broom from the lower trail head at the
saddle to make the sign visible from the parking area.
For those of you who might enjoy a hike fairly close to Eugene, try Castle Rock!!
There are three trail heads starting at different elevations which affect the length and
difficulty of the trip.
From the summit the length of the McKenzie Valley is visible as well as an excellent view of
the Three Sisters.
Hikers were JoAnne Arnold, Catherine Jones and Margaret Wiese.
Two others cancelled at the last minute.
