Tidbits Mountain

June 23, 2007

Ann-Marie, Nancy, Dick, Sam and Glen left Eugene in one car, and met Ellen in Blue River. After a pleasant stop with coffee and pastries at the Sather Rest Area and Meditation Center, the group took two cars to the Tidbits Mountain trailhead on a mostly gravel road. The last 200 yards of this route is very rutted, and a high clearance or 4x4 is recommended (or park on the main road and walk up the last pitch). The trail passes through several different types of forest and rocky environments, with a variety of wild flowers and shrubs in bloom. A few of us scrambled up the rocky summit to the old look-out site at about 5,200 feet elevation, and enjoyed views of Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, Mt. Washington, the Sisters and Bachelor. Sam and Glen tried to pick out Iron Mountain and Cone Peak from the many similar “lumps” on the horizon. After some gray clouds blew in cool air with the threat of rain, the group returned to the parking area, ending the trip in warm sunshine.

Hikers were: Ann-Marie Askew, Dick Hildreth, Ellen Sather, Glen Svendsen (leader), Sam Tracer and Nancy Whitfield.
