Rebel Rock Loop

June 26, 2004

This years difficult Rebel Loop Hike (some would say brutal) went flawlessly for a change. Dry, cool weather (if not dry, drowned by wet brush). From the five mile junction up Rebel Creek, our trail has become a brushy mess for a couple hundred feet. Nice to know where the trail should be. This year I hit the correct spot to start the uphill cross country part of the hike right on. (Absolution for last years mistake). Then ridge top to Rebel Rock, scramble thru brush to the base for lunch. Great views. Next a short climb to the top of Rebel Mountain and down (brush) to a rocky outcropping for a great view of Rebel Rock and an incredible volcanic dike. Serious brush thrash from there to the trail. As usual we stopped at the lookout. (Heavy brush from the main trail). Every year it shows increased disintegration, sad. I guess by now the cross country section has been well defined by how many times the word “brush” was used! Down hill trail to the welcome cars. A very pleasant day with three very strong and congenial companions. Hikers were: Larry Huff, Ed Lovegren (leader), Craig Renkert, and Barry Smith.
