Event Details

HIKE LEADER:  Jeff Scheetz, FANs Hiking Coordinator

HIKE RATING: Difficult

This three mile round trip hike starts at Sand Ridge Trailhead (across road from 8370 SW Sand Ridge Rd at Crooked River Ranch). Group will follow the established trail a short distance to a vista spur trail. After descending by the cliff, group will skirt the base of the tallest tower (Eagle Claw) and continue on a descending upstream traverse across a major draw. This requires steep side-hilling on faint game trails, so Vibram-sole (or equivalent) hiking boots are required. From the draw, group will ascend to the sloped hillside containing the remaining seven towers. Continuing upstream allows connecting to the established trail, climbing up to the rim and looping back to the trailhead. In addition to the close rock towers, expect to see river canyon scenery and raptors.  Wear adequate footwear, bring extra water (2 liters), lunch, sun protection (sunscreen and shade hat), and hiking poles (recommended). Hike leader Jeff Scheetz can be reached at 503-277-9110, jscheetz@ix.netcom.com).
