Flatiron Rock

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Inside Flatiron Rock, Badlands Wilderness (bobcat)


Flatiron Rock rears 45 feet above the surrounding landscape. You can follow a trail to enter the split in this tumulus, which runs for some distance. Scramble to the top of the lava ridge on either side to get views west to admire the snowy Cascades landscape from Mount Hood to Mount Bachelor, with Mount Jefferson and the Three Sisters forming the centerpiece. Looking immediately east, you can make out The Castle and Badlands Rock, your next destinations. Beyond them are West Butte and Bear Creek Butte, and to the south you’ll see the Horse Ridge volcano cluster.
