Climbed Belknap using the approach from hwy 242. This route uses the Pacific Crest Trail which crosses a long section of lava. The climb up the mountain is in steep, loose scree. I also summitted Little Belknap on this trip. The views are awsome, a person can see many Cascade Peaks.

I’m glad there was a trail through the lava fields. The dark rock really heats up in the afternoon. The final climb up Belknap Crater was not very fun but going down was fast. Went to Little Belknap and checked out the caves there.

The wife and I really appreciated the CCC trail over the lava -- I can't imagine that hike otherwise. Great lava tubes to the east, on the way up.

My brother Eric and I were driving back to Provo, Utah after attending our brother Harold's wedding in Portland. I talked Eric into a hike along the PCT with the goal of climbing Belknap Crater. He couldn't spare the time required so I settled for Little Belknap and we explored the Lava Tubes that had some snow in them near the entrances

Hiked this alone Like I usually do.

Nice warm day but not too hot.

Took the side trip to Little Belknap and poked around the small caves.

Visited with a PCT thru hiker.

Half the work is trudging through the sandy soil to the summit.

Cornvallis (see post below) and I hiked up both little and big Belknap. Nice. Not the greatest views, the weather couldn't decide if it was coming or going. Incredibly windy!!! There was a group of four going up after us and one of the girls was in a cotton mini-skirt and t-shirt. I don't know how she got up the nasty scree slog as far as she did.

Hiked along with Little Belknap. Very cool section of PCT over miles of lava, feel sorry for the trail builders. Extremely windy on top, approaching the time we chased off of Whitney. Great views, you can almost see the lava flowing. Gave a PCT through hiker from NC a ride down to Sisters to re-supply.

Climbed this many times since and almost every time I go over the Hwy 242 pass. Very interesting multi-cratered cone with great views of the Sisters and Washington.

I hiked this after doing Little Belknap Crater. It reminded me more of the beach than a mountain until I got to the top. The craters below the summit are pretty neat. Quite windy at the top. I could see from Jefferson to Diamond Peak. I could also see a forest fire burning north of Black Butte. Following the lava flows to their source at Little Belknap was the highlight of this one for me. Neat lava tubes (caves). Looking at the age differences of different lava flows from Belknap's summit was also pretty cool.

Did this on my way over to Bend from Eugene. 3 hours round trip. Went up the steep trail up the east flank with fine views of the Middle and North Sisters in front of me, descended the north ridge, looking at Mt Washington and other peaks further north.

Brian JenkinsRoute Climbed: East side sand Date Climbed: September 26, 2003  Sucess!

Brian Jenkins

Was going to climb something different today but that area is still closed due to the B & B fire so I checked the book and saw this one. Headed to it and started about 1 pm. Very hot, in the 90's. Hiking this one is like walking on those little lava rocks in your front yard around your bushes. At least until you get to the base of Belknap. Then it turns to a steep sand climb. Neat crater though and great views, especially of Washington.



Did the scree ski down and then went over to Little Belknap and checked out the cave there before heading back.
