Gearhart Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"If you truly want to experience the beauty and solitude of pristine wilderness, this hike is for you. Old-growth ponderosa, lodgepole, and whitebark pines fill the Gearhart Mountain Wilderness with their stately beauty.

This hike also takes you through the Palisades, a unique area of oddly shaped rock formations, and ends at a high pass with magnificent views of Steens Mountain to the east, the Three Sisters Mountains to the west, and California’s Mount Lassen. Backpackers have the option of continuing another 3.4 miles to Blue Lake, a high alpine lake stocked with rainbow trout."
