Lookout Point to Winberry Divide

Wednesday, June 8, 2011
Leader: Rob Castleberry
Hike: 8 miles, 1500 ft (Moderate)

This hike follows a section of the Eugene to Pacific Crest Trail, leaving the north shore of Lookout Point Reservoir just inside the Willamette NF boundary and climbing to Winberry Divide, the ridge between Middle Fork and Fall Creek-Winberry Creek basins. We started under cloudy skies with cool temperatures for the uphill portion. Sections of the trail are not well drained and especially in the first mile we dodged the mudholes churned up by mountain bikers. Perhaps they were responsible for sawing out some to the recently cut logs from across the trail. The sun came out when we reached the top of the ridge and followed it for another half mile. After a relaxed lunch break we headed down, logging close to 10 miles and back in town by 4 pm.

Members: Rob Castleberry, Joe Sanders, Barbara Norregaard, Jim Whitfield.
