    A great way to spend Independence Day. Road would normally be passenger car accessible, quite a few potholes along the way, and a couple places that could be muddy/rough earlier in the year. Trail climbs steadily from the trailhead, never too steeply. A nice little downhill respite approaching the spring, then back uphill to the final destination. It is a nice forest trail most of the way, and doesn't break out into open meadows until you turn south for the last 1/2 mile. Then you have great views all around. Lots of flowers along the way, but some of the early bloomers were just starting at the top. Give it another couple weeks and it would probably be even more amazing. Definitely a place I would return to.

    We hiked in from the TeePee Trailhead, visiting the Oregon Butte tower, then north to Dunlap Spring. We took a "zero" day at Dunlap, which was actually a chance to day-hike. After that, we went south to McBain Spring, about 3 miles south of OR Butte - a beautiful spot.

    Advice - stay high on the ridge - good trails. The trails in the canyons are hot in the summer and not well maintained.

    The high ridge, describing a "C" shape around the Butte is fantastic - be mindful of the distance between water sources, though. Carry at least 3-4 liters.
