Eleven hikers crammed into Dan’s Van and Ed’s Outback
(thanks to Helen for tolerating the middle seat in the back)
for an efficient drive to the trailhead.
A sunny, clear, warm—but not overly hot—day.
Much of this hike is in the shade including some very big trees and
wildflowers and lush groundcover.
You get peeks of the Three Sisters on the way up but at the top
when you swing around from the west side the views are 360 and
it’s obvious why there was once a lookout on this spot.
We wrote a brief note in the book kept in the abandoned lookout and
spent a leisurely lunch period admiring the cascades.
A pleasant walk down and back to Eugene by 5 p.m.
Enjoying the walk and the views were nonmembers
