Announcing a new event for The Bend Hiking Meetup Group!
What: Hike to Little Belknap Crater
When: Saturday, July 21, 7:30 AM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
The hike to little Belknap Crater starts from the McKenzie Pass. It follows the Pacific Crest trail across one of the largest lava flows in the area to reach the summit of Little Belknap. The views of Mt Washington to the North and the Sisters to the south are spectacular. We start at 5000 feet and climb to 6057 feet. Please note that this hike is out in the open. There is no shade - so bring plenty sunscreen - and you need plenty of water.
Strong hikers can continue along the Pacific crest trail.
No fees or permits are required. It's probably not suitable for dogs because of the sharp lava.
Once again, let's leave early to avoid the heat of the day.
Meet at Starbucks at Cascades Village at 7:30am.
For hikers from Redmond area - meet at 8am at Ray's parking lot at the far end of Sisters.
