Grizzly Mountain, OR

Post by Solofemalehiker35 » March 3rd, 2020, 8:03 am

Would like to know where I can park preferably close to highway and grizzly mountain road. Has anyone hiked up to grizzly mountain in the crooked river National Grasslands area? I saw it when I was hiking gray Butte a couple months ago. Any info would be much appreciated.

It looks like there's a road to the top and a bunch of radio towers up there. It is outside the Crooked River national grassland, not sure if it's private land or not.
Will break trail for beer.

The land along the road and around the summit is federal/BLM land, the land directly to the west between the summit and the edge of the Crooked River Grassland is State of Oregon land. The parcels NW of the summit are owned by the mining operation, so the most promising non-road route (the NW ridge) is primarily on private land.

Thanks Crook County GIS!

A picture is worth a thousand clicks on a County GIS map. :)

Ooh clearly I have a thing to learn about access to maps online. How did you generate this?

I just used GPS Visualizer's drawing tool (click the "link" that I included). One of the background map options is from the OR/WA BLM office.

Caltopo.com has a nice public lands overlay, although I notice that for some reason it omits Crooked River National Grasslands.
