From the Springfield WInco parking lot, we headed up Marcola Road to Sweet Home and another 21 miles to the Trout Creek Trailhead and the Menagerie Wilderness (established1984). The steep trail to Rooster Rock was in good condition. There were hundreds of calpyso orchids to distract some of us from the relentless elevation gain. On top we were able to view Rabbit Ears and find the climbing route up Rooster Rock. Hen Rock, Turkey Monster, and Chicken Rock were hidden in the rugged terrain.Members: Janet Jacobsen, Nancy Whitfield, Carla Cooper, Steve Adey, Betty Grant, Leigh Williams, David Cooper, Steven Johnson.
