Hawk Mountain was an easy 1 hour hike to a summit with great views of Mt Jefferson and further south. The trail is well maintaned and there were Huckleberries galore that may delay your QRX. 

Take forest road 46 (paved) to forest road 6350 and 6355 west to the trail head at 44.84062, -121.94718. Forest road 6350 is a well graded gravel road that is rated "Prius-able". The Hike is 2 miles each way with an elevation gain of 789'.

No contacts were made on VHF, but I was only using an HT with whip antenna and I didn't try really hard. Your milage may vary. It has good prominence in the area so it would proabably do well for S2S party.

There is a small cabin at the peak that you can stay in on a first come first serve basis.
