Mount Yoran

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Mt. Yoran and Divide Lake (Cheryl Hill)
  • Hikes including this destination:


Description

Mount Yoran's craggy prominence stands sentinel over Divide Lake in the Diamond Peak Wilderness. The easiest route to the summit is a Class 3 scramble from Divide Lake to the south. Mount Yoran is an older shield volcano (about 400,000 years) and the rock can be crumbly and unstable.

A quarter of a mile away to the southeast is a similarly aged sister peak, officially unnamed but usually called South Mount Yoran. This peak is slightly higher than Mount Yoran at 7,138 feet.
