Rancheria Rock, OR | Private Property


Rancheria Rock is south of Fossil, Oregon about 9 miles. Rancheria Lookout Road heading up towards the summit is gated and locked and posted "No Trespassing." The summit appears to be a fomer lookout and likely has some RF comm sites.

Zero Butte, OR | May 2018


Zero Butte is just west of Condon, Oregon and is an easy drive-up summit. Take Highway 206 4.5 miles west from Condon and turn (left) west onto Richmond Road. Continue 1.5 miles to an unmarked dirt road heading off to the left. This is about where the unexpected subdivision ends and where what looks like a former military installation begins. The dirt road was easily passible in a passenger car for the 0.9 miles to a fence and a gate where the high point is located.

Grizzly Mountain, OR | May 2018


Grizzly Mountain is an easy drive-up summit about 9 miles west of Prineville. The views are great and the road passable in a passenger vehicle - perhaps slowly in the rocky places.

Stony Mountain Oregon


There is a sign posted at a gate that reads "No Trespassing - Private Recreation Lease." Access to the gate is along mostly graded gravel roads.  I didn't pass the gate to hike to the summit for obvious reasons.

A Bad Hand of Pinochle (Pinochle Peak, Oregon)


Finding myself with a rare weekday off, I worked through a handful of possible peaks. After being pushed to look at lower elevation summits by remaining spring snow, I noticed a named, unactivated, two pointer in Tillamook State Forest – Pinochle Peak. After a few hours of study, a possible path was identified. It was clear that approaching from the south off of Highway 6 would be sketchy, but with limited time, it was the chosen path.
