Dead Mountain

May 3, 2008

Dead Mtn. rising just to the north of Oakridge, was once known as Green Mountain, but forest fires led to a name change. We followed the Flat Creek Trail for about 2.5 miles, climbing steadily past a multitude of Calypso orchids. We then followed a ridge-top logging road for about a mile, mushing through snow at the top, past communication towers, and along a very narrow ridge that makes a dramatic extension into space from the south side of the mountain. Lingering clouds kept us from seeing mountain-tops in the far distance, but we thoroughly enjoyed the panorama as we munched our sandwiches. All agreed that it’s a spectacular view point, and a relatively short drive from the city.

Hikers were: Mari Baldwin, Shelle Borton, Lana Lindstrom and Rob Castleberry, leader.
