Gearhart Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Most Oregonians have never heard of Gearhart Mountain, an ancient shield volcano that rises in a long, sloping curve above the rolling pine forests of south-central Oregon. This is a shame, because the small wilderness here hides a wealth of interesting sights.
Marshy meadows are home to thousands of croaking frogs, a small lake is filled with hungry trout, and a hillside hosts an army of oddly shaped rock pinnacles. But the main attraction is Gearhart Mountain, especially the towering cliffs on the mountain’s east face. This hike takes you to the base of those cliffs and along the way visits many of the wilderness’ best features."
