Tidbits Mountain

August 5, 2006

Six hikers met at South Eugene HS at 8:30 on a sunny Saturday. We split into two cars and headed up Highway 126. We arrived at the trailhead at about 10:15 with the temperature a pleasant 65. Note to future hikers, parking at the junction of road 877 and 1509 is highly recommended. This modification will add less than a half mile to your hike, and your car will appreciate avoiding a short stretch of very bad road. The hike couldn’t have been better. We saw countless different wildflowers (columbine, bleeding hearts, paint brush, gentian, penstemon to name a few), old growth Douglas firs, an impressive rockslide, imposing pinnacles and an amazing view of the Cascades and surrounding valleys. When we got back to the cars around 1:45, everyone agreed that the relatively short hike was well worth the nine miles of rough gravel roads. Hikers included Ann-Marie Askew, Glen Svendsen, Margaret Prentice, Kathy Hoeg, non-member Gerry Lee and leader Stewart Hoeg.
