Mt. June/Hardesty Mountain

September 14, 2008

Leaving from South Eugene parking lot at 8:00 under blue skies, we were able to reach the trailhead with careful reading of the directions to start hiking at 9:30. The first 1.2 miles reaches the top of Mt. June. . . an endless stair case up. The view should have been fantastic views but due to several local fires, the air was filled with smoke. The traverse to Hardesty Mountain is under a canopy of tall fir trees. . . or should have been. A mis-read of trail signs resulted in a visit to “Hardesty Way” which certainly dipped and climbed! Mountain bikers provided a map and enlightenment of the trail mishap. The trip felt more than 9.6 miles and elevation of greater than 2100. The crew took it in good spirits and had a great workout! Thanks to the great crew of Chris Molly, Jim Pierce, Charlie Van Deusen, Becky Lipton and Laurie Funkhouser, leader.
