Triangulation Peak Hike 30July07 Set 1
Spire Rock and Triangulation Peak are near the northwest corner of
Jefferson Wilderness in the Oregon Cascades. Triangulation Peak is about
2 miles from the trail head. The first mile offers little elevation gain
and scattered openings for views to the north. This is rather classic old
growth forest. The last mile and a half offers a very manageable ascent
via switch backs. The trail is in great shape. The part I did could be done
in tennis shoes very easily.
A view from the road about a mile west of the trail head.
This vantage point offers great views in to the west side of Jefferson Wilderness.
Fireweed (Epilobium Angustifolium)
