Big Huckleberry Mtn, WA | April 2014

Summit: 
W7W/LC-069

There are at least four trails that approach the summit of Big Huckleberry Mountain - we choose the Pacific Crest Trail from the south for about 8.6 miles round trip and 1400 feet of net elevation gain (1900 total).

From Portland, take I-84 to Cascade Locks and cross the river for two dollars (2019 price).

Red Mountain, WA | April 2014

Summit: 
W7W/LC-036

Here's a six point summit to tackle on a nice summer day - we tried it with lots of snow and found a blizzard at the top in mid-April. The trail is on a road of about 7 miles round trip and about 1800 feet of gain.

Bobs Mountain

Summit: 
W7W/LC-139

I did this summit on 26 March as it was close to where I was staying. It poured rain on me the whole time but I came out with 14 quick contacts including a S2S with Etienne K7ATN on 146.52. I drove up the road and until my truck would not make it any further (4WD) and then hiked up the rest of the way. If you look at my everytrail tracks the "GO" marker is where the dirt road starts and the "END" marker is where I parked the truck. You could drive further then this if it was a dry day or if you had a jeep or 4 wheeler.

Peak 6001, OR (snowshoe) | March 2014

Summit: 
W7O/CN-078

These eleven miles (RT) seem much farther when you are on snowshoes - take that into account if you should decide to try this winter activation.

Peak 2140, OR "Back-up Plan" | Nov 2013

Summit: 
W7O/WV-134

Along Highway 22 between Salem and Detroit there is an easy drive-up summit. The road is passable (with some care) in a passenger car. This summit could be a  back up plan when nearby Rocky Top can't be accessed due to snow.

Cornell Mtn, OR | January 2014

Summit: 
W7O/WV-090

Here is an urban 'pavement' activation - the closest one to downtown Portland. The summit proper for Cornell Mountain is on private property with the Activation Zone accessible from a neighborhood street with no shoulders.

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.
