Bachelor Mountain

The view of Mount Jefferson is even more stunning from here than from nearby Coffin Mountain.
Many interesting and beautiful plants can be seen as you head up the ridge. At an intersection, you can choose to go left up to the summit, or, for an easier and more floriferous side trip, head right about half a mile to the beautiful south-facing slope of Bugaboo Ridge.


Trail: 3.8 miles round trip to summit (4840–5953′) or to Bugaboo Ridge (4840–5360′)
Location: northeastern Linn County; Willamette National Forest, Detroit Ranger District
USGS Map: Coffin Mountain; T11S.R6E.S12,3
Habitats: meadow, rock & cliff, seep
Bloom: June to August


Travel on Hwy 22 to Rd 11, Straight Creek Rd (12.4 miles north of Santiam Junction or 2.7 miles south of Marion Forks, between milepost  69 and 70). Go 4.1 miles, then turn right at the second junction of Rd 1168 (sign can be hard to read). After 3.8 miles, you’ll pass the small spur road 450 where the Coffin Mountain trailhead is located. After another 0.7 miles on 1168, turn left onto Road 430. In less than 0.5 miles, the road dead ends at the trailhead.
