Green Springs Summit to Hobart Bluff 10-20-21

Photos by Bob and Francie

Bob, Sherry, Nanci, Leslie and I braved the bad weather reports of high winds and rain. We arrived at the trailhead on the Greensprings at 9:30 AM to a nice fall hiking temperature in the high 40s later reaching into the mid 50s. At one point we could see the rain coming so we stopped to put on our rain gear. By the time we were done, the rain was barely a drizzle.

As we went a little higher, we could see that some snow had fallen but it never interfered with our hike. We could start to see parts of blue sky and were hoping for some good views at the top. As we headed up to Hobart Bluff, Mount McLoughlin and Mount Shasta were in the clouds. We could see towards Klamath Falls and into the Rogue Valley. Mount Ashland also stayed behind clouds and Pilot Rock kept trying to peak out of the clouds but never fully emerged.

We went out to the rock viewpoint and looked down on Hobart Lake and then moved on up to the top to have lunch. The wind picked up so we moved our location and had a nice lunch.

This was Bob's first time on top of Hobart Bluff and I had explained to him that the first time I ever did this hike I was so shocked at the great views of all the mountains. As were were starting our hike back down Nanci happened to look back and exclaimed at how wonderful Shasta looked. That was the amazing view I was hoping for!!!

We hiked back to the cars at a fast pace and were back before 2 PM. Since it was such a short time since we had lunch, we skipped beer and fries and headed home
