Peak 4925, OR | Feb 2014

Summit: 
W7O/CN-086

A fairly short hike near Mt. Hood gets you two points - in the summer this activation may be a bit easier - it was too much post-holing in snow (past my knees!) in February.

Wanderers Peak, OR | Dec 2013

Summit: 
W7O/WV-052

A near "drive-up" two-point summit in the Clackamas River drainage with good views. This area is likely busy in the summer but it was mostly quiet on this December day.

Leisurely stroll

Summit: 
W7W/MC-028

Longwire mnt. 2012-07-15 CN96jv50

Quickly, after Old Scab I activate this plateau as well. So far the most-most easiest "hike", or more like a walk in a park. Driving only a mile further up from Old Scab trailhead I reach the top of the mountain. Here is a big open space. Park the car in the shade and start to collect this giveaway six point.

Peak 6001, OR | Oct 2013

Summit: 
W7O/CN-078

This yet unnamed peak deserves a good name as it's a very worthwhile activation. It's a bit out of the way but very quiet compared to nearby Lookout Mountain and the views on a clear day of Mount Hood are excellent.

Enjoy bushwacking? Like to climb over (and under!) a maze of large, downed trees? We've got a great SOTA summit for you in the Clackamas River area.

Huckleberry Mountain, OR | Nov 2013

Summit: 
W7O/WV-050

One of the most gorgeous hikes I've taken in Oregon, it's clearly popular during the 'summer' season but we had it all to ourselves this spectacular November Sunday. Note that there are four "Huckleberry Mountain" in the Oregon ARM - one of them is also in WV and is also 2 points - make sure you get yourself to the right one.
