New Meetup: Spencer's Butte Sunset Hike #3

From: Bill B
Sent on: Sunday, August 30, 2009 9:43 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Eugene Hiking & Camping Meetup Group!

What: Spencer's Butte Sunset Hike #3

When: September 2,[masked]:45 PM

Where:
Spencer Butte
85401 South Willamette Street
Eugene, OR 97402

The sun keeps setting earlier and earlier, so this might be the last sunset hike.

We'll leave the Spencer's Butte Parking lot promptly at 6:45 p.m. in order to make it to the top a little before sunset at 7:48 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. It gets rocky near the top, so look for 3" round metal trail markers attached to the rocks.

The weather forecast looks good so far (high 82, partly cloudy).

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.

The last Eugene Emeralds baseball game starts at 7, so look for the stadium lights from the north side of the butte (about 90 degrees to the right of the sunset).
