Ascent Trip Report

Started at the now-closed Ochoco Ranger Station. Good trail all the way, well maintained by horses and chainsaws. Lots of forested meadows down low, denser forest in the middle, becoming open and rocky at the top. Snow is completely gone. Views are probably great, but the clouds were just low enough to obscure all of the Cascades except Mt Bachelor and Black Butte. Fields Pk and Strawberry Mtn (82 miles) could be seen to the east. A black bear was on the trail on the south side of Duncan Butte.
