Mystic Forest on Ostrich Peak

Getting Ready to Hike the PCT through Oregon

Mystic Forest had a dream to complete the PCT through Oregon--so she decided to do it this summer. I hiked this section of the PCT in 1984 and decided to accompany her to see what has changed in 29 years. We just finished a training hike with our fully loaded packs up to Ostrich Peak on the edge of Ashland, Oregon. The trail has a 2280 foot elevation gain in about 4 miles. I have been reading my trail journal from 1984--I did the trail in mid July and encountered a lot of snow and mosquitoes. I had to walk the road through Crater Lake National Park because the trail was covered with large snow drifts and was impossible to find in those days before GPS. It will be a lot drier this time!! We will hike from the CA/OR border starting on July 13. Then we will take a short break and re-start going north from Callahan's on July 27.>
