Drove to the trailhead from Grayback above Glendale and enjoyed a solitary hike under sunny skies. Then drove on to Brandy Peak.

Nice trip down to the south western section of Oregon where we were able to hit back dirt roads and connect Mount Bolivar, Brandy Peak, and Grayback Mountain. Three Oregon CoHP's and three P2K's; not bad.

I hiked this on with my daughter, Tori on our way to Coos Bay. We were in a hurry because my wife waited for us at the trailhead. We did it in 65 minutes roundtrip.

I connected Brandy to this one via Agness, which meant approximately 100 miles of backwoods driving on some of the windiest roads in Oregon.

Nice, easy trail. The summit statue no longer is there, although a small commemorative plaque is on the ground.

FYI- Dean's driving distance estimates are incorrect. Fortunately, there are no real turnoffs and the Mount Bolivar Trailhead is very well-marked, when you reach it.

Decided I was in shape enough to run the Bolivar trail. Sadly I was so asphyxiated by the time I got to the top the way down was more of a run/roll. I found the only shape I was in was "round," cause I rolled just fine.

After doing Brandy I figured I would nab a second short COHP. After an insane amount of backroads driving I made it to Bolivar. It probably took me longer to drive between the two than to hike either peak. The area has burned fairly recently. But the trail is in good shape. I did not see the Bolivar statue and it appears to have removed.

Nice, late evening hike with good weather. Wide views down into the Rogue River country and south toward Brandy Peak. Got back to the car at dark and couldn't find the correct road to Glendale. Took the long route to Riddle instead.

38 minutes to the top, including a few breaks for my old dad to rest. Views from the summit were great, but clouds limited visability. We did this right after Hanging Rock, which made for an easy, yet fun day. I highly recommend both.

See Bob's entry below. I too would like to revisit this one some day so I could see what the view looked like. We did Brandy Peak later the same day to pick up Curry county. It also rained on that one.

Dean Molen and I hiked this one in typical western Oregon misty rain. There were no views except the flowers and trees. Nice hike, and one that I'd like to see the views from.

Very nice little hike with Shelby in a seldom-visited corner of the state. Short hike, turned into a combo day with Hanging Rock which I highly recommend. Probably 70 degrees on the summit this early March day.
