Tire Mountain

June 24, 2005

This easy hike, near Westfir, has several things to offer: many wildflowers, sunny meadows, views of Diamond Peak, Mt. Bachelor, two of the Three Sisters, old-growth forest and Hills Creek Reservoir. When you arrive at the top there isn’t much of a view since trees block most of it. Be sure to take a change of shoes as this trail can be very muddy especially since it is shared with mountain bikers.

Our week day hike included Margaret Prentice, Sandra Larsen (leader), and non-members Pat Bean, Julie Dorland, Karen Rayle, Lucy Rayle, Bella Shaver, Ben Shaver and Eleanor Wilkerson.
