South Badger Ridge, MT| May, 2019

Summit: 
W7M/BE-182

There are a number of options to access this summit.  It can likely be nearly a drive-up if it is approached from Hwy-278 to the north going south past Road Agent’s Rock.  It may also be accessed from the town of Bannack year-round.  Bannack was originally the territorial capital of Montana and is now a historic ghost-town state park that is well worth visiting.  We accessed the summit by foll

Bunker Hill, Oregon | Dec 2019

Summit: 
W7O/NC-038

 

My Automotive GPS did a pretty good job getting me to Bunker Hill. However, I did need to turn around once and do some reconnoitering. To help the next activator here are some specific directions.

Ilahee Rock, Oregon | Sep 2019

Summit: 
W7O/CS-094

Illahee Rock Lookout is a relatively easy hike, 1.9 miles and 590 ft. elevation gain, with good road access from the North Umpqua river (highway 138). The trail and its access are well described on several web pages and William Sullivan's book “100 Hikes in Southern Oregon”, so I won't repeat that here.

Red Cone, OR | June 2017

Summit: 
W7O/CS-022

Here's another summit in Crater Lake National Park that accessed with a cross-country hike. The easiest ridge for ascent is near the angle of repose with loose red pumice-like scree on the upper slopes, giving Red Cone its name. Although only about 2.5 miles round trip, half of the 600 feet of gain is in the last quarter mile.

Walker Mountain, OR | December 2019

Summit: 
W7O/SC-094

Walker Mountain is a Southern Oregon summit that could be a drive-up for those with a fully capable 4x4. However, the roughest part is also the start of a decent hike and getting to that rough spot is easy with a vehicle with decent clearance. Note that there is another Walker Mountain in Oregon - this is the one near Grants Pass.

Fielder Mountain, OR | December 2019

Summit: 
W7O/SC-099

Fielder Mountain is an easy 'road' summit in Southern Oregon. With several large RF sites at the top, the road is passable in a passenger car all the way to the summit - however a gate may put you on foot for the last portion.

Peak 740, OR (Lost Dog Hill) | December 2019

Summit: 
W7O/SC-382

Here's one of the closest "near" drive-up summits there can be - a few steps away from the car into the woods brings you into the Activation Zone. This is a very much out of the way summit, along Highway 101 on the Oregon Coast, about 14 miles north of Bandon. Note that there are other Peak 740 in Oregon - make sure this one is your intended peak.
