 Hike information - Oregon Hikers Field Guide

NOTE: The blue marker indicates the trailhead.


Coffin Mountain is a great companion hike to Bachelor Mountain. The trailheads are very close, and both are easy enough to be done as part of the same trip.

In addition to the wildflowers, Coffin Mountain has a fine view of Mount Jefferson. Please visit Tanya Harvey's web site for more information and plant lists.


Travel on Highway 22 to Road 11 (Straight Creek Road), which is 12.4 miles north of Santiam Junction or 2.7 miles south of Marion Forks between mileposts 69 and 70. Proceed 4.1 paved miles, then turn right and fork uphill onto gravel Road 1168. (Note that this is the SECOND junction of Road 1168.) After another 3.8 miles, turn left onto Road 450. The parking area and trailhead is just beyond this intersection.
