Pilot Rock

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Pilot Rock from below (justpeachy)


In 2009, Pilot Rock was included in the newly designated Soda Mountain Wilderness. The name comes from the fact that this prominent landmark once guided gold miners, trappers, and pioneers toward a pass in the Siskiyou Mountains. Oregon's last known grizzly bear was shot near Pilot Rock in 1891.
