Overview To peak Bohemia Mountain is a relatively easy task. The great thing about this mountain is the intricacies. Ghost towns and abandoned mine shafts litter this historic site. As you first begin to traverse the area you feel like you have traveled back in time and the pull of the mountain overwhelms you. I suggest not taking the trailhead but instead heading up the face. If you do this in August you will be overcome with wild huckleberries and steep cliffs, an incredible combination. As you make your way up the tiers of the face you will stumble upon several natural and man made caves making the climb well worth while.
Bohemia Mountain is number 51 on the Oregon p2k list. Once this mountain is peaked you will have very nice views of Mt. Shasta in the south on a clear day and north to Mt. Hood.
For those peak seakers this is an easy hike 3/4 of a mile of steep trail can get you there the easy way.
