Announcing a new Meetup for The Bend Hiking Meetup Group!
What: Black Crater hike
When: August 21,[masked]:00 AM
Cascade Village in North Bend
Bend, OR 97701
Black Crater is a small shield volcano lying just to the south of the McKenzie pass. Although its height is a modest 7,200 feet - the views from the summit are magnificent. The trail climbs from the pass to the summit over 4 miles with approximately 2500 feet of ascent.
Meet at Starbucks in the Cascade Village shopping center (by World Market) at 8am.
Note: The McKenzie pass highway is currently closed for reconstruction but it is planned to re-open on 17th August. If the highway is not open we will find an alternative destination.
Leader is Tom
