General Description

Maiden Peak Trail (#3681) is a difficult 1.8 mile trail. Right from the start, the trail begins to climb. It soon levels out to a gradual uphill grade, with good views of nearby hills and valleys. It crosses Skyline Creek and the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail before reaching a dry flat. The trail climbs again; steeply at first, then gradually, as it passes through rocks and around small, snow-fed ponds. Once again the grade steepens as the trail climbs up the west side of Maiden Peak. Momentary relief comes at a small meadow where the trail levels as it passes through stunted, windblown trees. With the trees below you, the trail picks its way through "rubble rock,' past a small crater, and finally along a ridge for the final ascent to the top of Maiden peak. At the top, turn slowly and view the 360 degree panorama of the Cascade Range.

Directions from Eugene: Proceed southeast on Hwy. 58. Continue east past the Oakridge Ranger Station for 27 miles to Waldo Lake Road #5897. Turn left onto it and continue for 2.0 miles to the trailhead, on the right.
