Hiking - Mount June

I figured it would be fun to hike Mount June on the first day of June. A scenic 2.4 mile round trip hike with 900' of elevation gain, out near Dexter.

We will leave from our normal meeting spot in the morning and carpool together to the trailhead. Please pack a lunch to enjoy, along with your ten essentials and anything you will need along the trail for the day. I recommend at least two liters of water for hikes.

Please allow time for all hikers to hike at a moderate pace and take pictures at their own leisure.

Trail Information: A former lookout site, the summit at Mount June is the area's tallest peak at 4,618ft. The hike is short at 1.2 miles from trailhead to peak, but there are some fairly steep sections.

The hike will take you through a Douglas fir forest with rhododendrons scattered throughout.

From the top you will get nice views of the Three Sisters as well as Diamond Peak.


Driving Directions: Take I-5 south of Eugene to Oakridge Exit 188A. Then follow Highway 58 east for 11.2 miles to Dexter Dam and turn right at the sign for Lost Creek. Go 3.5 miles to Eagles Crest Road and turn left over a small bridge. Take Eagles Crest Road 7.6 miles toa fork and veer left following the brown hikers sign. This is Road[masked] and you will take this 2.6 miles to where the pavement ends and continue on on this road another 3.5 miles of gravel. You will then come to a small triangle of roads on the left. Take either left, the first or second one, they meet up in a few short yards. This is Road 1721 and you are only on this for .1 miles to Road 941 on the left. This road is somewhat steep and rutted and may not be the best for low-clearance cars. Take this road .4 miles to the trailhead sign on the right.

Hope to see you on the trail.

    A great and scenic hike. I had been wanting to get up there for awhile. Was well worth it, and the weather couldn't of been better for it. Amazing views of the Three Sisters, Mount Bachelor, Diamond Peak, and more. I easily could of spent my whole day up there taking in the scenery, if it wasn't for the great food and company to be had at the picnic afterwards. Thanks to everyone that came. It was great to see a lot of new people join us for the trip.

    Matt, I will be coming in the big white van. I am thinking of doing some Dutch Oven cooking for the picnic. Maybe a peach cobbler for dessert and my world famous spicy beans for a side. Are we doing hot dogs or?

      I'm thinking of doing brats or chicken. Bring whatever you would like to. The peach cobbler and spicy beans sound amazing!

    I just found this MeetUp group today - this will be my first hike with your group and I'm looking forward to it! I'm hoping to find more information on the site page about the '10 essentials' and meeting location (best buy or dexter?) I'm looking forward to this hike!

      You can find the list of the 10 essentials under the "Discussions" tab, then click on "Message Board". Basically the 10 essentials are items every hiker should carry with the to be prepared at all times. We will be meeting at Best Buy for the hike, and then at Dexter later for the picnic, after the hike.
