Mount Defiance-Starvation Ridge Trail Junction

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Mount Defiance-Starvation Ridge Trail Junction (Steve Hart)
Sign at this junction (bobcat)


A location under a powerline doesn't make this the most scenic of trail junctions, but these are two important trails nonetheless. The Mount Defiance Trail #413 makes a sometimes brutal attack on the slopes of Mount Defiance and the Starvation Ridge Trail #414 climbs about 2000 feet to make it to the "bottom" of what's known as the Starvation Ridge Hill Climb. Both of these trails are all about endurance and stamina, mixed with scenic views.
