Ascent Trip Report

From OR 140 1.5 miles east of Bly, turn north on Campbell Lake Rd for 0.5 mile; right on FSR 34 for approx. 24.7 miles; north on FSR 28 for 8.4 miles; left on FSR 3411 for 1.4 miles; right on FSR 450 for 1.5 miles to the barren, windswept summit of Bald Butte and its L.O. The L.O. is a low ground-mounted, gable-roofed L-4 cab, first built in 1931 and renovated in the 1990s. It appeared somewhat forlorn, particularly as it was being boarded up for the season by a forest service employee just as we arrived. From Bald Butte we returned to FSR 28; SE 10.8 miles to FSR 33; 10.8 miles along the Chewaucan River to Paisley on OR 31.
