New Meetup: Mount June (and more)

From: Chad

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

What: Mount June (and more)

When: Sunday, March 21,[masked]:30 AM

Where:
Albertsons @ Hilyard & E 30th
3075 Hilyard St
Eugene, OR 97405


I'm planning this one to try and accomodate people of various hiking abilities, so to start with we'll take the short route up to the top of Mt. June. This trail is only about 1.2 miles, however it is pretty steep in places. Although short, it's uphill the entire way. However, once on top you'll be rewarded with a nice view of the surrounding area and the Three Sisters Off in the distance. The plan is to hit the trail around 11 and make it up to the top by noon, so bring a lunch to enjoy. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll have a good view and a dry meal.

For those who like a bit more of a hike, after scaling to the top of Mount June we'll continue along the ridgeline over to Hardesty. Depending on the mood we may climb to the top of that one (although there isn't much of a view) or just continue along the trail until we get tired and head back. Most of the ridge trail is up and down, so it will definitely be a good workout. Bring plenty of water, snacks and dress in layers. I have two spare CamelBacks I can bring too if anyone would like to use one.

We'll meet at the good old Albertsons at 30th and Hilyard and work out carpooling out, and on the way back we'll likely stop somewhere in Eugene for dinner and a beer for those inclined (there's really nowhere to eat between Eugene and Mt. June unless we drive over to Oakridge which is a bit out of the way).
