THE PEAKS IN THE CENTRAL OREGON SIX-PACK OF PEAKS CHALLENGE

I hiked Black Butte

BLACK BUTTE - Elevation 6,436' (1,962 m)

Black Butte is an extinct stratovolcano that sits east of the Cascades, rising 3,076′ above the surrounding plain.  This symmetrical cone-shaped butte is home to an active fire lookout tower, as well as a historic cupola that you can easily imagine must have been the coolest summer digs ever, with spectacular views of Mt Washington, The Sisters and beyond.

I hiked Tumalo Mountain

TUMALO MOUNTAIN - Elevation 7,779' (2,370 m)

A shield volcano that rises to 7,779′, giving you great views of the Three Sisters, Broken Top and Mt Bachelor.

I hiked Black Crater

BLACK CRATER - Elevation 7,251' (2,210 m)

A "broken" cinder cone with a glacier-carved valley and quite possibly the best views of the Three Sisters.

I hiked Maiden Peak

MAIDEN PEAK - Elevation 7,823' (2,384 m)

The highest point between Diamond Peak and Mount Bachelor, this peak is an old shield volcano topped with a cinder cone. There are two main routes to the summit, and both are challenging.

I hiked Mount Bachelor

MOUNT BACHELOR - Elevation 9,068' (2,764 m)

Everyone in Central Oregon knows Bachelor. The route up is challenging and the views will whet your appetite for the final peak.

BADGE - South Sister

SOUTH SISTER - Elevation 10,363' (3,159 m)

South Sister is the third tallest mountain in Oregon. Summiting this mountain makes the perfect finale for the challenge.
