Moon Point Trail (#3688) is an easy 1.1 mile hike that leads the hiker to a unique area known for its botanical variety and habitat diversity. It crosses wet and dry meadows, rocky cliffs, and passes through stands of high-elevation conifers. Wildlife love the area, so use your eyes and ears.
Moon Point, once the site of a fire lookout, offers a panoramic view of the Rigdon District. It also joins the Young's Rock Trail, which extends to the Middle fork of the Willamette River.
