Climb Mt. Fuji

Let’s climb Mt Fuji! Well, it’s really called Fuji Mountain and it’s right here in the Oregon Cascades. We will visit the former lookout site on top of this 7144 ft cliff-edged volcanic peak for a beautiful view of Oregon’s Waldo Lake, virgin forests and mountains. Depending on the weather, we could see all the way north to Mt St Helens and south to Mt Shasta in California. Best of all, our route of 3 miles round trip has only about 900 ft elevation gain. There is no better way to get high in the Cascades than this easy hike. I hope folks from the Sierra Club Juniper Group in Bend will join us on this outing.

For more information send email to Mike Brinkley: [masked]

Difficulty: Easy
Distance: 3 miles round-trip
Elevation Gain: 900 ft.

Eugene area people will meet at the South Eugene High School parking lot, 19th and Patterson at 7:30 to carpool. The drive to the trailhead is about an hour and 40 minutes.

Hikers from Bend will join us at the intersection of Highway 58 and Eagle Creek road (forest road 5883) at around 9:00.

Preparation: Bring a lunch, rain jacket, extra layer of clothing, sun hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellant, and hiking boots.

Dogs: In accordance with National Sierra Club policy, dogs, other than certified assistance dogs, are allowed only at designated dog events. This outing is not a designated dog outing.

    A hike through old-growth Hemlock which led to a fantastic view and the company of good people made for a great day!

    I have a question.... if one is already RSVP'd "yes" but they might like to invite a guest who isn't a Eugene Sierra meetup member, how would you do that? I know I can't just put "+1" now that there's a waiting list. But how would you put that guest on the waiting list w/o changing your own RSVP? Get what I mean? Since it seems a few people always tend to drop out closer to the actual date, there's a good chance there would eventually be a spot open for me to bring a friend.

      I don't know if Meetup has a way to handle that. If the guest has a Meetup account then just join the wait list. I don't think you have to be a member of the MRG Meetup to RSVP for events. As you say, though, it's likely a few will need to cancel before the event.

    THe forest service website in the link above describes the long hike. We are taking the shortcut from where the trail intersects FR 5883. this turns it from a difficult hike to an easy one.
