Charlie Van Deusen,
Mary Ann Holser,
escaped overcast Eugene/Springfield weather for a half-day hike up
the Goodman Creek trail.
Clear blue skies and crisp temperatures stayed with us from beginning
to end of the four-mile hike.
Trilliums and old-growth Douglas fir framed the trail, which follows
the contour of Lookout Point Reservoir.
We stopped at a pretty waterfall for snacks and conversation before
hiking back to our cars.
Some wondered why more Obsidians don’t take this hike, which
took us deep into a fragrant, mossy forest and is only 25 minutes from
home via Highway 58.
The trail also can be lengthened to a more rigorous 13.4 (roundtrip)
trek to Eagles Rest.
