Maiden Peak

September 24, 2006

We call it the Fall Classic, and this Sunday hike up the Maiden Peak Trail from Gold Lake Road did not disappoint. Perfect weather and temperature, great trail, interesting and energetic participants—it was, as the kids say, “all good.” We started from SEHS parking lot at 8:00 a.m., hit the trail approximately 9:45 a.m., summitted with all nine hikers and were back in Eugene by 5:30 p.m. The forest was cool, quiet and primeval, the top of Maiden Peak was clear and vistas were there for the taking. Peak breezes did their best to help all our “wick-away” materials wick away the hike’s perspiration, and we soon were ready to descend.

A good time was had by all.
