Announcing a new Meetup for Eugene Hiking & Camping Meetup Group!

What: Spencer's Butte Sunset Hike #2

When: August 12,[masked]:15 PM

Spencer Butte
85401 South Willamette Street
Eugene, OR 97402

Everyone made it back from the first hike, so by popular demand, we'll do it again. Note this hike is on WEDNESDAY.

We'll leave the Spencer's Butte Parking lot promptly at 7:15 p.m. in order to make it to the top a little before sunset at 8:22 p.m.

If you'd like to leave earlier or later, we'll take the main trail, so go straight past the trail on the left near the parking lot. Walk 1/2 mile and turn left at the trail junction. Then it's 1/2 mile to the top, with 800 feet elevation gain.

The weather forecast looks good so far (no heat wave).

Civil twilight, bright enough to see, only lasts about 30 minutes after sunset. So be sure to bring a headlamp or a flashlight, since we'll be walking the last part in the dark.

It's breezy at the top, so bring a jacket.
