Distance: 3 miles round trip
Elevation Gain: 1000 feet

Explore the wilderness in Eugene’s backyard! The Hardesty Mountain roadless area is the largest to be found within an hour of Eugene. The hike to Mount June winds through a diverse mature forest and climbs (steeply in places) to rocky outcrops covered with wildflowers to a lovely view. Optional 3 mile total add-on to Sawtooth Ridge for additional views and wildflowers if the group desires.

Carpools leave from central Eugene. 

The goal of Oregon Wild’s outdoor program is to connect our supporters to the places we work to protect and conserve. Our guided hikes and outings are led by staff members with experience in our conservation campaigns, knowledge about the natural world, and a passion for Oregon’s wild places and wildlife. Our programs offer an educational experience and a connection to advocacy for the places we visit. We strive to make our outdoor programs inviting and safe for everyone.
